Avoid using InfoRSS

by Volker Weber

I have had the second instance of somebody using an abusive feedreader. It was polling my site every two minutes. That is the default for InfoRSS. (How stupid is this developer?) Don't bother changing it. No matter what your setting is, it will be ignored, and InfoRSS will happily continue to chuck along at one poll every two minutes. I think I need to block this software.

Looking for a good RSS plugin for Firefox? Use Sage.

Or simply use Opera and enjoy built-in RSS support.

Ditto.

Why bother blocking the software? Wouldn't the clients get blocked very soon already?

Why would they?

You could use another instance of your flood protection for the RSS feeds.

But I guess it would take some work in order to get this to work with MT :-()

thanks for the hint...

Well, didn't you have a black-list for clients who poll too frequently? Wouldn't this mechanism automatically catch all InfoRSS clients already? Admittedly, only after a grace period, but...

Use Bloglines with the fabolous Bloglines Toolkit.
Highly Recommended!

Sage, funktioniert super mit heise und mit spiegel, leider bringt er bei vowe einen "XML Syntax-Fehler".

Habe ich eine Möglichkeit vowe in sage zu integrieren?
