not working

I just added this URL:

but it looks like NewsBlur has been unable to retrieve it successfully since 2013.

Is it a problem with the site itself not responding properly to NewsBlur’s request? Or is there something odd about the request NewsBlur is making?


Looks like something is wrong on their end, because when NewsBlur includes their feed address in the user agent, they give this error:

>>> feedparser.parse(u, agent='NewsBlur Feed Fetcher - X subscribers - (Mozilla/5.0 (Maci

ntosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_7_1) AppleWebKit/534.48.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.1 Safari/534.48.3)’)

{‘feed’: {‘summary’: u’

Not Acceptable


An appropriate representation of the requested resource /feed could not be found on this server.


\nApache Server at Port 80’}, ‘status’: 406, ‘version’: u’’, ‘encoding’: u’iso-8859-1’, ‘bozo’: 1, ‘headers’: {‘date’: ‘Thu, 09 Apr 2015 18:58:47 GMT’, ‘content-length’: ‘320’, ‘content-type’: ‘text/html; charset=iso-8859-1’, ‘connection’: ‘close’, ‘server’: ‘Apache’}, ‘href’: u’’, ‘namespaces’: {}, ‘entries’: [], ‘bozo_exception’: SAXParseException(‘mismatched tag’,)}
And if I take out the ‘’ from the user agent, it works fine. I’ll email them and let you know if I hear back.
