I subscribe to a few google news feeds (world, nation, sci/tech, etc). As of 9/15 the feed has either stopped loading or is extremely sporadic in loading stories. If I check against another “reader” site, the feed seems good and is still loading correctly.
SAX Exception (553)
Google has been blocking NewsBlur - this is discussed at https://getsatisfaction.com/newsblur/… - Samuel has tried on several occasions. He had stopped updates in an effort to get the block lifted — that may be what you’re seeing.
If you’ve ever tried to contact Google directly on an issue like this you know they’re as responsive as a brick wall, so hopefully they will reset the block eventually.
Thanks for the info
