I’m getting a lot of requests from “MagpieRSS” which is an RSS feed handler for PHP. In some cases, they’re coming every 15 minutes. I checked the logs and found they were all coming from the same IP ( which gives me “403 Forbidden” at a domain called “” (the domain doesn’t cough anything up either). I Googled a bit, but I can’t figure out what BlogSafe is. Does anyone know?



  1. Don’t know anything about BlogSafe, but they would have to tweak Magpie’s reccomended settings (including turning off the built in caching) to make it hit your site every 15 minutes. Hopefully they at least left the conditional GET support enabled, so they aren’t eating up your bandwidth.
