RSS Feed Scraper – Update

There are some things that make me happy. This is one of them. I don’t know if it was me banning the IP address from this site, or the 403 error image I started to serve to the website that was scraping my feed but the posts are all taken down. I never did hear back from the web host, and I suspect I never will. I did notice that the WordPress bot is gone from the FeedBurner list of bots, so perhaps they were scraping the FeedBurner feed. It really would be nice for FeedBurner to implement a basic banning system where users can ban specific IP addresses from accessing feeds. That would be at the top of my wish list to make FeedBurner better.

Nice to have won that small battle.

  1. Ha ha! In one way it is nice to know that someone thinks that my blog content is worth stealing. On the other hand I would like to get credit and not have my stuff stuck on a butt ugly scrapper blog.
