           Summary: Unusual tcp outbound request
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 523.x (Safari 3)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Plug-ins
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: scott at newgeo.com

Since I moved to Leopard, I notice there is a scheduled request for TCP port 80
to www.washingtonpost.com

I have done a clean install, and can not track this down.  While I have a
feeling this has nothing to do with webkit, I have high hopes there is someone
here who can at least explain to me what is going on, and ideally, how to stop

I ran grep -ir 'washingtonpost' / and found some pretty interesting stuff:
Binary file

I have one of these for every langauge there is as well:

Thing is, I have deleted all my bookmarks, and as you can see, the grep command
is finding no other matches.  Why is pubSub calling these feeds?
