The RSS Backlash Begins?

Hmmmmm…

Your Headline Reader Has Been Banned

Your RSS reader is abusing the Slashdot server. You are requesting pages more often than our terms of service allow. Please see the FAQ link for more information, and if you email us, include your IPID MD5: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

…except that I am not, I don’t think; I suspect that it is me, and every other user of my corporate network using the same webcache systems.

My justification for my theory: that i have several of these RSS-Ban messages, each with different “IPIDs”.

    Proxy caches haven’t caught up with RSS, or with web services in general. Until they do, we should consider putting an aggregating proxy like PlanetSun inside the SWAN, and encouraging folks to use that rather than having their RSS readers pointing at the Sun proxies.
