|Google Reader ignores the <pubDate> tag in the feed, so the posts are out of order.||noamparn||2/23/10 10:23 AM|
One of my feeds is a status update on a reservation page.
Each update includes a <pubDate> tag, corresponding to the time the reservation was made.
I need to see the posts in order, so that I can follow the number of people who have reserved for the event as it goes up and down.
Having the posts show up in arbitrary order makes Google Read useless for this.
Why can't there be an option to sort based on the <pubDate> field in the post?

Same issue. The pubDate is visible by hovering over, but I'd like to sort by it.
Any Googler care to comment?

Duplicate report of the issue here: http://www.google.to/support/forum/p/reader/thread?tid=6557bd6d5ad78d03&hl=en
Really a strange behavior of google... what it basically says is - "Feed providers, we don't trust your dates, only the dates we see are the real ones" - Well that strange logic fails at least once - when the feed is picked up for the first time. So I really don't get why they're doing this (and not even providing an option to circumvent it!)
