Hmm… so if I understood correctly, if you request data when using poll-and-diff, Meteor could give you results that are 7 seconds old if the last polling happened 3 seconds before that? (and we’re polling every 10 seconds).

What’s strange about this is that I’m pretty sure that when I decided to move a lot of my publications to poll-and-diff and set the polling at 5 minutes for mostly static publications, this slowed down my application and I expected it to have the opposite affect and speed it up. Any ideas why this could have happened?
