“In the blogosphere, there is hardly anything more irritating (than) an abbreviated RSS feed,” blogger Steve Main wrote on his blog. “The whole purpose of an RSS aggregator is so that I don’t have to open my freaking Web browser to 100 different pages.

By not including full content in the RSS feed, you take away some of the productivity gains that RSS offers.”
