Well, those things happen. That's not the problem. The problem is that there are 23 posts so far in the Google Help group, but no response of any sort from Google.
I wonder how often the Help groups get read. Even a post saying "Yeah, we know, we're working on it" would go a long way.
I'm disappointed. I thought of the Google Reader group as among Google's best.
Update 3/18/09: Turns out that the people who are supposed to monitor the help group were away at a conference -- could have been everyone really. I'm not sure if they just got back or (hah, hah) if someone read this post. Anyway, help is on the way.
Update 3/19/09: The fix only took a few hours once Google's engineers returned.
