About the new warning on HOOK_FETCH_FEED

In one of the latest commit, a warning have been added about the use of HOOK_FETCH_FEED in plugins.

Maybe it’s reliable to rely on a flag placed on a plugin to tell tt-rss the plugin take care of the remote server by not requesting excessively. For example, the plugin tumblr_gdpr do not request the page content (it’s not a scrapper) but simply change the UA before requesting the server. That’s all.

On counterpart, the very usefull feediron is a scrapper and can overload the server (if misconfigured, as seen in this feed ). But, because it don’t use FETCH_FEED (but ARTICLE_FEED) this particular plugin don’t throw any warning.

Users, what’s your opinion on that ?
Kind regards
