  1. Robert,

    I’ve already found my feed getting ‘splogged’ quite a bit on the web. Don’t you think that partial feeds help that? Just curious.

    Thanks,
    Doug
    PS: I switched to a full feed tonight. :)

  3. Added my name too. I refuse to subcribe to any partial feeds with the only exception being Robert Cringely.

    Oh and Cringely oddly enough is the worst offender as his feed is not even a partial one. He decides that a ONE sentence feed is sufficient. I mean how am I suppose to know what “Is there a beer bong on YOUR resume?” is about without clicking thru. Yes, I am exaggerting a tad bit as the title gives some clue’s but still.

    I love the guys blog, but man this is annoying.

    Scoble, you got to tell him to change it. I mean he doesn’t even have ads on his blog. Why the heck not have a full feed??

  5. Hola, Senor Scoble. Funny I didn’t even realize it until now, but I read your feed using Dave Winer’s NewsRiver application and your feeds are truncated! Seems like I get to see the “description” field and not the “content:encoded” field using NewsRiver. Who woulda thunk it?

    Just thought you’d be interested. Maybe Dave has to buy you dinner now.

  7. Just re-iterating what Tamaer says – I also get truncated feeds on Bloglines even though I ticked the ‘full feed’ box.

  9. Duncan: my feed is a full text feed. Your reader isn’t pulling the right feed. NewsGator pulls down my feed as a full text feed. Maybe you need a better reader?

  11. Robert,

    I agree with having full feeds, but I found it surprising that your feeds show only two lines of text. I have sent you an email with a screenshot of what i see.

  13. Huh?

    How come I get only partial feeds from your Blog?

    Wait lemme check my feed options…

    *scroung* *scrounge* *check* *check* *clickety-click*

    Nope, there’s nothing I see fit! Repaint, you thinner!

    PS: Obviously, I am in a jolly mood, so please excuse the hyperactivity… :)

  15. [...] In a petition for syndication of excerpts, Danny Sullivan makes some interesting points primarily focused on copyright infringement.  Danny definately has a strong opinion on the subject.  His post was in response to Scoble’s push for full post syndication.  Scoble doesn’t give much reason for his position other than that he “hates partial RSS and Atom subscription feeds.”  The number of people who have actually signed the Full Feeds Petition, 316, tells me there must not be too much passion for the position.  Although, I’m not aware of a similar petition for partial post syndication … so how can one tell.
