Ignores Publish and puts as Scheduled (2 posts)

    Here's an odd situation. I'm trying to feed a calendar/events RSS to our WP site from Moveable Type and I realized it keeps putting the posts into "Scheduled" mode even though I have it set to publish immediately. It's not publishing any feeds for this particular list on the front end, but they show up as pending/scheduled in the admin. It took me 2 hours to realize what was going on. After seeing a date in one of these pending posts that it was scheduled for November 19, 2011, it seems the syndication is picking up the actual "event date" in the body of original feed and posting it as a scheduled post. So if it was already posted on Movable Type let's say on July 10, 2011 for a speaking event that's taking place on August 5, 2011 (mentioned in the body of the post), it's placing the syndicated post as "Scheduled" for August 5, 2011 on our WordPress site. How can I get around this so it just pushes it as published?

    Nevermind, I found out the publish dates from the MT blog were being set that way so the poster could keep the post in calendar order. It had nothing to do with the post content. ;)
