RSS Weirdness

I’ve gotten some complaints recently about old posts percolating to the top of the RSS feed. Apparently this happens when I go back and edit an old post. For example, the survey bias post from a while back, which was rife with typos, may be right below this now. The RSS feed sorts the posts by the “updated” timestamp (which I can’t modify) instead of the “posted” timestamp (which I can). This is just more Blogger (2.0!) suckiness that I can do nothing about. Except avoid typos and never go back and edit anything. I’ll try!

My other option is to go to WordPress, which I’ve been considering for at least two years, but I’m still not that desperate.
