Ack. Two questions: anybody know how I don't even know how to ask the question. Let me start at the beginning:

I just went back to and discovered the old MT site had reloaded itself over my new LJ version. I went into MT and changed the output file for the index to a different name, which may or may not do the trick; I don't know why it reloaded in the first place, as I hadn't made a new entry. Someone did comment, I think. Maybe that did it. Can anyone tell me if that might have been what did it, and if yes, have I stopped it from happening again by changing the output file?

Second, if that's not it, might it be the RSS feed pinging the site that did it? If so, any idea how I turn that off, or, more ideally, switch it to looking at the LJ? As someone pointed out, there are a few strange people out there reading the RSS feed through other means, and I'd like to not cut them off if I can avoid it. I know the mizkit_feed here can't be turned off, but ... er. Well. Help? :)

(eta: Rill says the RSS feed for the LJ account is located at (and lo, it does so appear to be), and does anybody know if I just delete the index.rdf and .xml from my MT pages if that'll just stop the mizkit_feed from, er, working? and if that might stop the main site from overwriting again?)
