CommaFeed Excess

I was poking around my logs, and it seems like someone’s using an instance of CommaFeed v1.0 running on AWS for their RSS needs. That’s nifty and all, but the feed fetcher is polling my RSS feed for updates every five minutes or so.

As you all can attest, I definitely don’t post enough to warrant that sort of schedule.

The server requests the feed twice (!) each time, and at best one of the two requests will 304. Best I can figure (and my server knowledge is admittedly sketchy), my server is 304-ing when it should.

I don’t know if these are bugs in version 1.0 (apparently 1.2 is the latest), or if there are screwy settings somewhere, but—whoever you are—you’re definitely using more AWS resources than you need to be.
