We would like to remind RSS users again that your feed URLs contain a ‘torrent key’ that identifies you. This means you should not share your RSS feed with other people on any service. Otherwise they can download files on your account, potentially wrecking your score.
Vuze (aka Azureus 4) is one such service, and particularly bad one in that if you share your UKNova feed URL it will actively suggest your feed to other users downloading UKNova torrents, who may not realise they are hijacking your account.
Users seen sharing their feeds will have their torrent keys reset, and may be banned on repeated occurrences.
Today is UKNova's 5th Birthday!

We would like to remind RSS users that the feed URL contains a private “torrent key” that identifies each user. Don't share your feed URL with others, or they will be able to download files on your account, potentially ruining your score.
More and more users have been seen leaking their torrent keys publically by accident, through the bloglines.com feedreader service. It turns out that the ‘private’ feed option is, misleadingly, no longer private: even when ticked, it still shares and indexes your feed for public use. This means you can't use Bloglines without compromising your account.
For this reason, effective immediately, Bloglines is banned. UKNova feeds will no longer work with it. UKNova RSS is primarily intended for the feed scanners in BitTorrent clients, but should you wish to access them through a feed reader, you can use any other application or online service that respects your privacy.
Users with leaked feed URLs have had their torrent keys changed; if this is you, you'll need to re-download the .torrent file for any torrents you are currently seeding, to get rid of the “unregistered torrent pass” tracker error message. Sorry for the inconvenience!
