Has anyone come up with a good replacement for Google Reader's (now-defunct) "Note in Reader" feature? "Sharing to G+" is NOT THE SAME, and emailing articles is annoying compared to the ease of pressing one tiny little button. [more inside]

Google Reader seems to be permanently displaying an error message when I first try to access my feeds. To recap the specifics of my problem, here's what caused it to come up in the first place, and what I've done to try and solve it.
1) Imported all of my feeds from another Reader account.
2) Attempted to access my new Reader account, which always results in the "You don't have permission to view this feed." error message. I can then click on "All Items" and access my feeds, but this extra step is really annoying (it's the internet, don't make me click twice ;).
3) Checked to see if the address is "https" and not "http". Yes, it's "https"
4) Tried deleting all of my feeds, starred items, etc, and then subscribing to a brand new one. The problem remains.
Anyone know what might be causing this? Can I just delete this Reader account (w/o deleting my Gmail, GPlus, etc.) and start again?
Also, yes, I asked this question on Google's forums months ago and haven't received any useful advice there. Probably because Google doesn't really care about its users. Oh, and this is on all browsers and all different computers.

Sometimes when I have a more than a week's backlog of unread posts on Google Reader, I notice that it will suddenly forget a couple of days' worth of unread items, annoying me to no end. Has anyone else noticed this and/or has tips for how to prevent this from happening? [more inside]

I want to remove all of the stars from my Google Reader starred items, so that I can start from scratch with my starred items. Is there any way to do this without doing it one by one? My searches seem to prove that this is a desired feature but not one that can be done, but I figured if there was a group that could either (a) help or (b) find me a shortcut solution, this would be it.

Why would my Google Reader "Next" button (the one you can drag right onto your bookmarks toolbar) just take me to random sites every time I click it? I'm logged into my account and everything. Doesn't look like any previous questions posted here address this particular problem.

A few Google Reader questions, beginning with: I have a few feeds that only of use to me at home: Mac software sites, etc. Is there any way with Google Reader to set things up so that you see (everything but feeds w, x, y, and z)
in one view and (feeds w, x, y, and z)
in another view? The other two behind the break. [more inside]

I use google reader as a feed reader. Recently some of my feeds seem to be getting doubled up. I don't really know what happening but when i read I will see and article and then a day later the same story will show up as unread again. It is really starting to bug me. Any ideas?
