Some Links don't open via http://www.newsblur.com/l.php?u=

The l.php which Newsblur uses to redirect from the feed-view to linked websites responds with 404-Errors while trying to follow otherwise perfectly fine links.

One Example:

http://www.newsblur.com/l.php?u=https://itunes.apple.com/jp/app/mojipad-written-planner-for-the-digital-age/id1132431009?mt=8&uo=4&at=1l3vx5v&ct=techjo

If I remove the prefix "http://www.newsblur.com/l.php?u=" the link is valid. With the prefix, i get a "404 · NewsBlur can't find that page".

The link is from the feed-view of this Japanese site: https://isuta.jp/category/iphone/2018...

What the? NewsBlur doesn't use any php whatsoever. I've never seen that URL before. Can you show me where it's coming from?

Then it might be a specific problem with the site i subscribed to. Just add this feed to Newsblur. Open for example the "Mojipad"-Article in Feed-View an you get this link: iPhoneアプリをダウンロード .
If you view the Website the Link Looks like this.
Maybe the publisher is using relative-links and Newsblur (or Chrome for that matter) substitutes the missing part with its own URL.
