I created a new folder called "Tumblr" (creative, I know) and added a few Tumblr RSS feeds to it. The first three or so worked as expected. Additional feeds are producing the error "This address does not point to an RSS feed or a website with an RSS feed."
This fails both with direct feed URLs (http://[username] and indirect URLs (http://[username]
I've seen this sort of thing happen on and off, lately, but with other sites, like GitHub. I add a handful of feeds, which works, and then the next feeds I try to add fail. If I wait a few hours, NewsBlur accepts feeds that I couldn't add before.

Tumblr has definitely been doing something to thier RSS feeds lately.  I subscribe to quite a few Tumblr feeds, and the RSS feeds have always been a bit funky, but in the past 3 months, new pages have not been working almost all the time.
