Feedburner Glitch Nixes Google Reader Stats … Temporarily

Did you notice your Feedburner subscriber stats drop precipitously today? Perhaps a little more than it does on the weekend? Perhaps by as much as one-half?

If you happened to remember that everyone’s subscriber stats *doubled* about a year ago thanks to Feedburner recognizing Google feeds, you might have wondered if the opposite happened — and you would have been right.
