Loading specific feed causes NewsBlur to go in to a fetch loop.

http://feeds.feedburner.com/IHasAHotDog causes Newsblur to go in to what seems like an infinite loop of requests against itself. Lots of requests to http://www.newsblur.com/reader/page/2..., lots of which get cancelled. NewsBlur continues to work without incident, but I wonder how much additional strain that's putting on your server needlessly.

Heh, you don't have to worry about the strain. There's safeguards all over the place to handle a flood of calls to certain endpoints (rate limiting), and I monitor all timings anyway, so I noticed almost instantly when something is getting hammered or even just working oddly against the server.

As for what's going on, I also subscribe to that feed and it loads fine for me. But is it possible you have an intelligence filter on the feed that is causing most/all stories to be classified as red, but your intelligence slider is set to yellow or green?

And does it still do this (since it's been 9 days and all)? I just shipped some code about a week ago that may either fix this, or in fact aggravate it.
