Yes, the feed has always been problematical, and many, many people stopped posting because of the constant issues. I mean even LL requires you to post to flickr, and not their own feed, for the SL pic of the day! But I fail to understand the logic behind it: you invent a darn cool like the feed with messaging function, make it work some 90%, but then you stop all apparent development on it. After a while you disable the feed messages (was there ever an statement announcing the reason?), but the rest continues to work (more or less). I miss a statement by LL. Is the bug marked resolved because it was in a wrong category, or is it resolved because the machines which kept the feed alive have been shut off?
