Issue: Ping erroneously reports "Ping is throttled!" when we do not recognize a ping URL entered at http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/ping.
Workaround: Enter a supported ping URL. Ping was originally implemented to the spec at XML-RPC.com which allowed you to enter the exact url specified in your channel link in an RSS feed or the rel=alternate link in your Atom feed, which was the URL of your blog, not your feed. For example to ping this blog you would enter "http://feedburnerstatus.blogspot.com/". We extended this to also support pinging with your feed URL (e.g. http://feeds.feedburner.com/yourURI ) but using this also erroneously gave the error listed above. Pinging with your feeds.feedburner.com URL should now work correctly.
