1000 Wells

I hope it’s not too late to join this movement launched by Ethan Kaplan of BlackRimGlasses. Ethan writes, “Everyone should unsubscribe to any blog or RSS feed source which does not provide a full-text feed for free. I’m sick and tired of being counted as a subscriber when the feed is next to useless.” I agree, 100%. Done & done. It’s better late than never, right? Thanks to Ben too, for spreading the good news.

  1. No problem. I think you hit the nail on the head though, a partial feed is a useless feed. It defeats the purpose. If someone is gonna make me click to their site to read their content then why offer a feed at all? A partial feed is the equivalent of sending me an email to let me know you’ve written something new and I should click to your site and check it out.


  2. We are in full agreement, Ben. Right on.
