Excluded taxa included in feed

Platform: Website

Browser: any, try wget

Description of problem:
I’m trying to exclude certain taxa from feeds that I’m subscribed to. This mostly works, but I keep getting species from (under) one excluded taxon in my feed.

This is the feed in question. Among the excluded taxa is 43095 (Leporidae, or hares and rabbits), but as I’m writing this, the feed has observations of Lepus timidus and Lepus europaeus (the forum software is limiting me to 4 links, but my example of the latter is observation #156252007).

Corresponding HTML view of the same query does exclude these observations, as I would expect the feed to do.

(Language for the entry title seems to be randomly selected for each observation, but that’s another issue.)

i’m not sure this would be a bug. the Atom feed comes from the old API, and the parameters that it handles may not be exactly the same as what the Explore page can handle. specifically, it looks like the difference may be in its ability to interpret / handle multiple values in the [without_taxon_id] parameter.
