Bug Description

I want to be able to subscribe to new items I added to my password protected RSS feed.

Without changes to UI, the feed URL should accept user:<email address hidden>

Currently any mention of ":" in the URL is taken as a port input regardless of its relative location to @ sign. It will result in the resulting fetch containing "Failed feed: [name]. nonnumericport: [<email address hidden>]"

FYI the password protected feed I am using is through getpocket.com's lists. By default it's protected. That's the usecase I intend to use this for.
