The Online Universities Weblog

Various authors, Mar 09, 2005
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is getting annoying in a hurry. I use PubSub to find content from a wide range of blogs; I subscribe to PubSub's custom RSS feeds in Bloglines. The Online Universities Weblog publishes an RSS feed which shows up in my PubSub subscription. So far so good. Now Online Universities has recently started running advertisements in their RSS feed. OK, a little annoying. But the ads change slightly each time the feed is published - not the ad itself, but the precise URL that the ad points to. PubSub regards this as new content, with the result that the same item appears over and over in my PubSub feed. Now this is becoming really annoying. I can't filter specific sites in PubSub or Bloglines yet - but when I can, Online Universities is at the top of my list.
