When I try to add subscriptions it will tell me there is an error loading the feed. If I try again it will bring up the details box for the subscription with the name 'fake' and will 'add' the subscription but it won't work. This is an issue for a range of sites and blog providers (wordpress,com and blogspot.co.uk and blogs with wordpress backends and so on). A few times this new feed has worked but mostly it refuses to add the feed.

        This has been happening to me forever and is still happening today. It prevents me from adding certain Craigslist search RSS feeds, although most others work fine. I haven't been able to find a pattern to what works and what does not... it's just that sometimes when i paste the RSS link and hit enter nothing happens. When I hit enter again (after waiting 10-15 seconds) I get a popup that is preloaded with the word "fake" in the Name This Source entry box. These second try entries never actually work, so I just give up.

        This issue was bought to attention October 6th and its still not fixed? This is a serious mishap. Tried adding various Tumblr URLs today (Oct 11th), and it won't work. Second try has the "fake" issue. Please fix as soon as possible.
