Details

Often the questions asked on https://ask.mozilla.org/questions/ and reported by its feed are gone when I open them. The feed https://ask.mozilla.org/feeds/rss/ still has them. I'm talking here about the majority of questions disappearing, if you exclude the questions by Noitidart and look997 you will get an even higher share.
Mike, can you look into this issue, please? E.g. the feed lists the topic "Unsorted bookmarks" with the link https://ask.mozilla.org/question/2134/unsorted-bookmarks/ but that redirects to the start page.

Huh, that's strange.

So, there's at least one bug here the "unsorted bookmarks" link was in the RSS feed, but had been held in moderation for the site (it's there now that I've approved it) and I'm looking for others.

Does this behavior _only_ manifest itself if you use the RSS Feed?

I'll bring that bug to the vendor directly; can you give me another example of posts disappearing? Specifically, are you seeing this only in the difference between the RSS feed and the site?

As far as I observed it, the issue only occurs with the RSS feed because questions get directly added to it. I checked the questions quit often after the showed up in my feed reader and >80% redirected to the home page - that's an approximation for the last year. The questions listed on the site are always accessible. So postponing the publication in the feed until the questions got approved would be nice. Thank you.
