Bloglines sucks

Hey, Bloglines, I don’t really care who’s problem it is, but my feed works just fine on Google Reader and doesn’t work on Bloglines. So, the only conclusion I’m going to come to: Bloglines sucks. Please fix before everyone switches to Google Reader.

UPDATE: Matt Mullenweg admitted it was a bug in WordPress and said that they are working on fixing it. Sorry for the stink, but I needed to force the issue because I was losing readers over on Bloglines.

  1. Let me join the growing concensus, Scoble:

    Scobleizer sucks

    Hey, Scobleizer, I don’t really care who’s problem it is, but it seems more and more posts sound as if the blogger was an incompetent, overhyped perfson. It works just fine with smart people, and doesn’t work with you. So, the only conclusion I’m going to come to: Scobleizer sucks. Please fix before everyone switches to reading books.

    UPDATE: Apparently, it was a bug in WordPress, their snakiness filter was down. They are working on fixing it. Sorry for the stink, but I needed to force the issue because I was losing IQ points over on Scobleizer.

  3. So you feel justified in causing Bloglines to lose users for something that’s WordPress’s fault just to keep yourself from losing readers?

  5. SHAME ON YOU Robert Scoble. You’re juvenile, irresponsible, completely self-centered and, what’s perhaps the most pathetic: you’ve shown you know jack about technology.

    JUVENILE:
    It’s simply brat-ish to insult someone simply because they’re having a technical issue.

    IRRESPONSIBLE:
    Not only did you not verify that the issue was due to Bloglines, you actually use a nasty post title, which is rather vile for a number of reasons:

    1/ considering the impact your blog posts have (at least until you ruin your reputation by repeating such actions)

    2/ given how blog posts show up in various readers and all around the Net, most people are never going to see anything more than the title.

    SELF-CENTERED:
    So it turns out that it’s not Blogline’s fault. OK – everyone is entitled to a mistake or a hissy-fit like yours. That’s when you should APOLOGIZE and try to rectify the harm you’ve done. Instead what do we get:

    “Sorry for the stink, but I needed to force the issue because I was losing readers over on Bloglines.”

    A half-baked 4 word apology which took you less time to write than the actual post AND not only do you seek to justify yourself, you want us to feel like you’re the one who suffered the hardship of losing readers. BFD as though readers are going to volitize simply because they couldn’t get your feed for a moment.

    YOU’RE A TECH WRITER?! LOL
    The irony of it all is that as someone who is supposed to know something about new media technology, in condemning Bloglines with the reasoning of ‘my feeds work in GR and they don’t in Bloglines, therefore Bloglines is at fault’ you’ve shown that you understand very little about how software and web services operate.

    The worst of it is that you’re one of the most (if not the most) widely-read individual blogger, and what you’ve done here is given blogging a bad name by showing so little responsibility in publishing a rash, false and damaging post AND without even a proper apology or retraction after the fact.

    And you’re worried about losing a few readers because of a technical glitch?!? I’d be far more worried about losing readers over this kind of juvenile behavior and demonstration over how little you’ve mastered the technology you write about.

    Note:
    I’m a Google Reader user and I’ve never used any other reader because GR has worked wonderfully for me so far.
