I used to be grateful for Y! dispersing our daily feed, but not anymore.
How do you stop the compulsive Yahoo pipes bot hammering a feed?
It hits it every minute or two despite the feed only being updated once a day. I know it doesn't eat BW, but it does keep our poor server's CPU needlessly busy.
When we blocked Yahoo Pipes on UA, it continues unabated sucking up thousands of 403s all day long. Insanely inefficient: No wonder Y! folded.
Anybody know how to get Y! to turn the Pipes feed bot off?
They get our feed via Slurp anyway. (And Slurp is hardly relaxed).
