Feed Oddities

Some people noticed some blog feeds that were showing posts from other blogs. Thanks in part to their quickly blogging the issue, we located and resolved the problem. A few people concluded that their blog’s feed had been compromised. We just wanted to let you know that there was no hacking involved.

The problem was caused by a bug in a new piece of software we are building to keep your blogs and feeds working quickly under heavy loads. If you saw wrong content in your feed, nobody hacked your blog or your feed. It was a software glitch. We are sorry about that. Blog on. :-)

    Thank you for quickly addressing the issue, I was one of the people that had problems with their feed – I noticed a couple others had problems in my reader.

    I appreciate that you were open, and gave a decent explanation concerning the issue, not just writing the problem off as one of those things.

    Thanks for several reasons. First, for being honest about the situation – unlike others who just shrug their shoulders and say, ” –it happens”, or just simply ignore the subscriber’s emails. Secondly – for being so quick to respond and correct the problem.
    Thirdly – for being the best. WordPress rocks!

    Blogging away here!
