If it is the same issue (as has been presumed when closing my previous post) then simply having the top level title be about one feed downplays the fact that it impacts almost all of my subscriptions. I would not care as much, except the ‘arstechnica’ issue was reported days ago, and has received no official response. My overall experience with NewsBlur is seriously impacted by this.
I have duplicates of almost all of my subscriptions. The copy operates as a folder, but if I delete that fake Folder it actually deletes its parent folder and all subscriptions therein.
This is a problem with the web client only, as my Android feed list still appears normal. Except now it has about 20 fewer subscriptions because I deleted one duplicate feed/folder.
So again, probably the arstechnica user and I are experiencing the same thing - but it is not an arstechnica issue, and there has been no official recognition of the issue. Combining reports makes sense, but not if it reduces a broad issue to a single feed, especially if the “single feed” issue is being ignored or overlooked.
