The RSS Blog

News and commentary from the RSS and OPML community.

Jim Rapoza: Many large sites that deliver RSS feeds recently started complaining that they are being hit every hour with a flood of reader requests that is, for all intents and purposes, the same thing as a denial-of-service attack. This happens because most RSS readers are pretty dumb about when they check for updates, and there's little the server can do to control this.

Randy: Another case of a journalist who failed to do his research. Truth is that all the large sites that complained were shown what they were doing wrong and admitted they exaggerated.
