Is the AskMeFi RSS feed b0rked? Only I keep getting the same 150-odd posts in my bloglines...

I'm sure matt (or jess) will chime in that it was an illegal character, etc.

What I think is a more relevant question....

Is why the Ask.mefi feed gets borked (several times in the last month) and the blue and gray do not?

I've stopped bothering to ask about the Askme feed. It dies pretty much daily with bloglines, and then suddenly 100 questions will show up at once.

Yeah, I got a truckload of new questions too for the tag feeds.

I have the same thing happening! It's not even new questions, it's the same ones over and over. The newest post dates to the 27th.

Agreed Divabat, I've been seeing the same ones over and over too

And they're only odd questions? No normal ones?

i see it die once every couple of days or so, but I just assume it's a little hint that i need to get back to work.

I think the answer to this question may be "Bloglines kinda sucks". At least every time I've tried to use it it's been hopelessly broken.

Regardless of bloglines' suckitude, as filmgeek points out, it's only the AskMe feed that gets broken, and it's broken just about all the time. If it was really a problem with bloglines, wouldn't you expect it to be happening for other MeFi-related feeds as well?
