Bloglines banned from Slashdot

Slashdot feeds has stopped working with Bloglines. Slashdot has a policy that a rss client cannot use its feeds more than once an hour. My Bloglines Slashdot feed now appears with a red exclamation mark beside it. I'm not sure if there is a fix for this. This appears to happen from time to time. Slashdot lifts the ban after 72 hours. There has to be a better way. Slashdot isn't like to change their rss policies because of bandwith concerns, and while Bloglines caches content, the Bloglines client is likely to access Slashdot's feeds more than once an hour.

Bloglines says they fixed this issue back in September.
