  1. Scoble; Maybe Ted isn’t seeing full feeds bacause, as you say his reader isn’t setup right, then again maybe it’s because the feed he’s trying to read isn’t publishing full feeds like you. But thats exactly the issue with the current state of web accessibility…maybe the site has marked it up to be accessible, maybe it hasn’t.
    But the difference is that with partial rss problem there’s only the single hurdle to putting out the same information stream to everyone whereas with html markup theres just so many points of failure and so much more reliance on the producer of the site/info.
    Just a thought.

  3. I do *not* subscribe to partial feeds. Sites that offer them disappear off my radar. If sites really want to offer partial feeds, offer at least a choice. IMHO offering only partial feeds is a stupid as banning firefox users with the ad block extension.

    Internet is full of stupid initiatives, Universal Music’s forced opt-in of drm-free music is another example. If people want to shoot themselves in the foot it’s fine by me.

  5. Those who don’t use full feeds should be tarred, feathered, and have the video put up on YouTube. I can’t stand it! It’s arrogant, presumptious, unhelpful, and I absolutely–on mere principle–refuse to ever click further.
