When I checked HalfEagle today I was very surprised to see just two sites filling the entire first page with posts!
I quickly disabled both sites to find out what had happened. In one case, the blogger had simply posted four items during a short period of time on similar topics (so it looked like one post that was repeated). In the other case, the blogger had switched over from hosting his own RSS feed to having FeedBurner host it.
The first situation happens every so often and is not a big deal. The second situation is rare but wreaks havoc whenever it does happen. The best solution right now affects both equally. Basically, if any one blog posts multiple times in rapid succession, HalfEagle will only show the first two posts with an extra link to the blog’s home page to see the rest.
I hope this is a fair compromise between accommodating bloggers who post frequently and protecting the home page of HalfEagle from being overrun because of a technical error. If you have another solution, please let me know! 🙂
