Not what I get (from your link):

This feed does not validate.


      line 16, column 1: Undefined channel element: br (6 occurrences) [help]

          	<br />
      line 17, column 0: Undefined channel element: b (9 occurrences) [help]

                <b>Warning</b>:   fopen(/var/www/sp/pirillo.com/chris.pirillo.com//wp-content ...

That's followed by several more lines of similar errors, and that's
followed by the source. 779 lines of it.

Your own link says it's broken. Therefore good software should fail on
it. If it doesn't(1) that that software would be bad and buggy.

You'll have to find something else to attack him on. So far in the last
12 hours(2) I've seen this failure, and your rant about the subject of a
post that appeared to me to be missing a word, not one that was

(1) I'm guessing either your own software is buggy and broken
    (surprise) or you're just looking for some means to castigate Roy.
    I lean toward it being the latter based on your previous rants.

(2) I've skipped several of your posts in the same period, too. So you
    may have even more foaming at the mouth than I'm aware of.

My advice to you is to get married. If you find a good wife
you'll be happy; if not, you'll become a philosopher.
