Buggy ask.sagemath rss feed in Feedly. How to solve?

Feedly (1) is a very popular rss reader. Since I'm using it, I tried to add the ask.sagemath rss feed. Feedly correctly displays the title of the feed ("ASKSAGE: Sage Q&A Forum"), but then it displays completely unrelated content (even some posts in polish). I reported the bug on the Feedly suggestion page (2).

I'm asking here whether the bug may be due to the ask.sagemath rss feed instead that to Feedly. Also, perhaps some other users of ask.sagemath that use also Feedly would be happy to have the problem solved, so they can upvote the reported issue (2).

Links (my karma is currently insufficient for adding them with the usual syntax):

By the way, the "subscribe to rss feed" link for the individual questions seems to work perfectly in Feedly.

This is indeed a bug of sorts, in that what you are seeing are spam posts that are not approved but are nonetheless showing up in the RSS. (I get this too, in a different reader.) I hope someone reports this upstream to askbot soon (my own authentication there has been borked somehow).
