RSS bandit detects, for example, this feed as an invalid

http://www.opennet.ru/rss.shtml?all

Although, feed validator shows that this feed is a
valid RSS feed:

http://feedvalidator.org/check?url=http://www.opennet.ru/rss.shtml?all

Most probably the problem is caused by incorrect
processing of character encodings checking (or
something related). For example, above mentioned feed
has KOI8-R encoding (russian unix encoding).

Thank you for your time.

    This is not our bug.

    It seems for some reason this website has banned RSS
    Bandit and redirects requests to
    http://www.opennet.ru/stop.txt?all

    I suggest contacting the webmaster of the site
