The Feedburner support person that helped me out (Matt) was awesome. My own server move messed up my feed, but Feedburner helped me fix all self-inflicted technical issues. Again awesome support! I'm happy to hear that the issues surrounding false inflation are going to be addressed on the corporate blog. Good for Feedburner for tackling these discussions head on and straight away. I'll be reading the upcoming series of posts, for sure. Feedburner is an awesome and very useful service for blogger and advertiser (potential advertisers) alike. It would be a terrible ashame to let a few unscrupulous people render it less than reliable. Thanks Rick. Rick, thanks for the extended offer of support.

Regarding the numbers issues that have bounced around the last few days, we will be posting a series of entries on our corporate blog (http://blogs.feedburner.com/feedburner) in the coming weeks that lay out in more detail how we capture the info, what it means (and what it doesn't), and hopefully address any questions people have.

I didn't notice yours missing ... though it proves my point in a way. You had to say "I didn't because ..." You shouldn't even have to say that much.

I took the feedcount chicklet off my site for other reasons but I wouldn't doubt that we see them starting to disappear.
