Does anyone have a good solution for either:

a) Avoiding RSS feed regurgitation into your LJ friends list
b) Reading protected LJ entries (e.g. your friends list) from an RSS reader

I'm getting tired of logging in to see the last 10 of (insert random rss feed here) all redisplayed because LJ or the feed felt ill that day.

a) Could you elaborate?
b) http://username.livejournal.com/data/atom?auth=digest
will let you do HTTP authentication to read protected entries. My understanding is that HTTP auth for RSS feeds isn't very widely supported.

Every now and then I get a large number of "replayed" entries from RSS feeds, sometimes many months old. One just happened yesterday so if you look back a day or so on http://stalkingmsd.livejournal.com/friends, you'll see lots and lots of extra entries from ecattell (note the difference in the dates of the entries and the dates of the blogger URLs).

If you just want to see your friends' journals:


You can use show=C for communities, Y for feeds, or any combination thereof (e.g. PC for personal and community journals). More info. As far as preventing feeds from barfing out 10 entries at once... not sure there's a solution :\

a. the regurgitation is the result of someone changing their user profile and lj getting confused by the updates.

b. lj doesn't seem to let you have an rss feed of all your friends, you'd have to add a separate feed per person, which royally sucks. you can get the auth stuff, with the url tmaher gave.

i've gotta agree with chaos on this one, separate readers, despite the lameness of the solution.
