Yet another Feedburner problem (Scripting News)

Yet another Feedburner problem (Scripting News):

“I got an email last week from an Italian blogger who I met at the dinner in Milan in June saying that a feature of Feedburner that allows people to game the subscriber count for a blog is wreaking havoc in Italy.”

Dave, that’s not a “feature”: that’s a bug, as confirmed to TechCrunch by FeedBurner’s CEO. I know that you don’t like FeedBurner, but there’s no reason to start pretending that it’s including “features” which let it be gamed.

    Bug or not it was discovered few months ago: http://tinyurl.com/2sswhm. Feedburner is aware of the problem and wrote an email to the italian guy who discovered it in March 2007. You can read this message here: http://tinyurl.com/384rg7.

    So the real question is why they did’nt solved it?

    Maybe because “it needs a lot of work”?
