PA Report RSS Bug?

I've subscribed to the PA Report RSS feed for several months. I've used The Old Reader, http://theoldreader.com/, since Google Reader went down. (I also use Firefox (currently v. 22.0) on Windows 7, but I don't think that matters here.)

This morning - I haven't checked the PA Report feed for a couple days, so the change might have happened earlier - any attempt to click on an article in the feed redirected to the feedburner main page for the feed, http://feeds.penny-arcade.com/pa-report. You can access the articles through there, of course, but it's not the direct link I'd gotten used to.

Here's what I'm guessing happened: PA switched the report feed from whatever service it was on before to feedburner, and feedburner isn't displaying the article links correctly but just links back to the main feed page. (This is just a guess.)

Now, feedburner has a box on the top right hand side of the page with various subscription options. Perhaps (re-)subscribing to the (I'm assuming new) feedburner feed would fix the problem, but The Old Reader is not one of the supported options. I tried the "subscribe with USM" option, which looked like a possible work-around, but that doesn't seem to do anything (I was expecting a pop-up box with "C/P this into your RSS reader").

Any help would be appreciated.

    I use Feedly and everything is still working for me. I am also using http://feeds.penny-arcade.com/pa-report. As far as I know that's been the feed URL since the PA Report started.

    To re-subscribe in The Old Reader you will probably have to paste that URL somewhere in TOR (I don't know exactly how since I don't use it).

    It's quite possible that it's an issue with TOR. Based on this article, you might want to find a new RSS reader anyway.

    Thanks for the heads-up re. TOR. I switched over to feedly, which read the feed fine.

    This did introduce another problem - Flash doesn't seem to play nice with feedly on Firefox. But it works fine on Chrome.
