This is irritating. Picked arbitrary sources with different xml feed formats to test aggregate, but rediff’s output seems special and unhandleable by spycyroll. Spent some time trying arbitrarily hacked versions. No luck.

Apparently rediff’s rss output is borked beyond repair. There’s no title and no concept of when the fishing post was published, among other serious issues. Hmm. See it choke in all its glory here.

I guess I will abandon efforts to fix it at my end for now, and send a general flame to the rediffblogs admin. What fish.
