I currently have problem with feed2imap as it recognizes quite often one post [1] from OpenTTD [2] feed as updated. The problem is in obfuscation they use for email address - it is encoded to html entities, but not every time to same string. Currently it looks to me that feed2imap decodes html entities which reference to a number, but not the ones which reference to hex number and it makes the difference in the text and feed2imap things the entry has been updated, what is not really true.

Sample text which can be found here:
