According to my Feedburner stats it seems I lost about 214 subscribers using Google Reader between Saturday June 16th and Sunday June 17th. This seems like a fairly significant number of readers to unsubscribe from my blog on a weekend especially since I don't think I posted anything particularly controversial relative to my regular posts.

I was wondering if any other Feedburner users noticed a similar dip in their subscribers numbers via Google Reader over the weekend or whether it's just a coincidence that I happened to lose so many regular readers at once?

If only Google Reader users appear to leave, maybe Google changed the subscriber count. Perhaps only active users are counted now?

On a side note, could you hide the email addresses on comments?

Google reader experienced some sort of data loss over the weekend. I didn't have a problem with my own account so I didn't bother to keep track of the announcement/link but I'd guess that would have something to do with it

I had the same problem where I was about 200 subscribers below normal though the numbers returned the following day so it would seem something was up.

they're sealing up your site. they'll do the same to your phone, your cable, eventually your finances...pretty much everything.
