Earlier I mentioned that I wished YahooFeedSeeker was more like Bloglines bot in that it should report subscriber counts back to publishers.
It already does that!
Here's a bit from my access log, slightly reformatted:
22.214.171.124 - - [23/Mar/2004:08:13:30 -0800] "GET /blog/rss2.xml HTTP/1.0" 304 - "-" "YahooFeedSeeker/1.0 (compatible; Mozilla 4.0; MSIE 5.5; http://my.yahoo.com/s/publishers.html; users 236; views 36994)"
It had been a while since I looked and I didn't remember seeing a mention of this at work--which isn't to say nobody mentioned it.
Thanks to Rick for pointing this out in my comments.
