Full feed, half feed for your RSS?

This is a problem that I have struggled with. I read most blogs from Google reader which shows up on my iGoogle page. I hate bloggers who give excerpt because it is a chore to visit blogs, especially when our shitty broadband is so slow. I also hate leaving my footprints on their site through MyBlogLog, Nuffnang and other social community sites. I like to be invisible. :P

Before I go on, I just discover that I can actually turned off Nuffnang tracking cookie. Nice, now I can lurk without others know I have been to their blogs. You can make the choice under your Profile page.

Ok, I hate people giving half feeds. And that’s why I struggle with this issue of providing only summary of my RSS. So many sites are scraping contents so I hate seeing my complete post on other’s site.

So, what’s your preference?

Full feed or summary of your blog post on RSS?

    pablo – Yalor, I also swing here and there. I sometimes, go half, sometimes full. Full feeds mean we are feeding a lot of rss scrapers. So, don’t know to please ourselves (from not getting scrape so much) or please our subscribers.

    raymond – Boh pien lor, sometimes, come by and make up the numbers in traffic lor. Cos I see so many scrappers so I go back to summary for a few days. Hope they gave up and then, I put back.

    rajawang – Yeah, I had done that for MyBlogLog and only realised I can do the same for NN.

    […] I also see 5xmom blog posts is included in PlanetMalaysia too but she has stated in the past her hatred for content scrapers. It’s only logical she has reduced her feed to partial feed only. So, her blog post in […]

    Please please please serve full feeds. Most of the time I will skip excerpt feeds even when they sound enticing, that’s how I manage my time reading and blog hopping.
