My site's RSS news feed has most of the items expected, but begins with two older items, both of which have pubDate tags with dates well before the rest of the items.

I looked at the revision history for the first post, and it doesn't appear to have been updated.

Does anyone have any ideas why this might be happening?

  • Why, yes, they are.

The reason there are old items at the top of the RSS feed is because they are sticky posts.
