I just posted the following over at the Feedback and Suggestions group for Google Reader:

I am subscribed to a lot of feeds, so I can often get over a month behind in some of them. However, all the feeds to which I am subscribed are important to me and that is why I don't unsubscribe to lighten the load.

I recently learned that unread posts that have been around longer than a month are removed from the remaining unread items in my feeds. This means I'm losing content that I care about.

Google Reader Team, I emplore [sic] you: please extend the life of unread posts, even if only by another month.

Thanks in advance,

This comes as a result of this and a recent attempt at using the new Bloglines Beta that left me severely unimpressed.
