Hey,

Sorry I didn't notice this post earlier. It sounds like TheOldReader is working again: http://theoldreader.yuku.com/topic/382/ ... 5obHrGiVnE

Ya.... sorry forgot to post back... they fixed it because of me... I contacted them ... explained the whole thing and they got back to me and fixed in less than 24 hours. I was pretty impressed.

That does sound good. My only concern now is that as more and more people switch to T.O.R. for craigslist feeds, it may start running into the same problems Feedly has been having, running into automated blocks due to volume of traffic.

actually they told me CL had changed something in how the feeds were "called" if that is the right term and they had to change it. So it didn't sound to me that they were blocked due to traffic. Let everyone change to tor.. the less requests on the reader the better.

Sorry, by T. O. R. I meant TheOldReader, not Tor.
And yes, they said that cl is redirecting their feeds in a way most readers don't follow. But what I'm saying is, since they are now one of the few readers that work, they will be getting much more traffic, and may eventually hit the same limit that Feedly did a month or so back.
