Can't think of any particular reason off the top of my head - there is
certainly no deliberate constraint on getting RSS feeds of older
However I can't say it was specifically designed to return older content.

It is likely they are striking a limit on the number of search results
returned (as the RSS feed is powered by our Sphinx search backend).
Could we have some details on how they are conducting the RSS feed
retrieval so I can debug why this is happening?
