View Full Version : Banned from Slashdot RSS

I've just tried using the SqueezeNetwork to browse Slashdot, and was informed that my reader was abusing the rss feed so was banned. I've never tried to browse the Slashdot RSS feed from my SB2 (or anywhere else at home) before, so I'm assuming that the IP address that is banned is actually the SqueezeNetwork itself (or one of its servers). Is this a known issue, or have I got the wrong end of the stick?

This is a known issue and I believe we have a fix for it. Thanks for
reporting it, though.
