Tony at Catholic Pillow Fight complains about my truncated site feed. Now I too am annoyed by sites that only have a partial site feed, but it doesn’t annoy me too much to click through to the whole post. But I have never considered those that read RSS feeds offline an can’t do this. There are more an more tools such as Google Gears that allow you to read feeds offline.
Though for those who want an RSS feed that lists the whole post including graphics simply use my ATOM feed. I have two feeds – one partial and one full. Unfortunately some browsers do not auto detect both feeds.
Some time ago I built the full feed when a reader requested that capability. So I will throw a pillow back at Tony and say "Hey all you had to do was ask."
Though to make it easier for others in my sidebar I now list both feeds under Site Feed and give a description.
What annoys me the most are those that have no RSS feed at all. For example Ellen at Oblique House a long time Catholic blog has never enabled her feed. If you create a blogspot blog now of days one is automatically created, older blogs though have to enable this in their settings. Other sites that annoy me that are without feeds is the excellent Catholic Report and the multiple Catholic news sites that do not have a feed (Catholic World News is the exemption). What really annoys me is new sites that go online without one. Once you get use to using an aggregator the thought of having to manually go to a site becomes quite annoying and often when I find a good site without a feed I just pass on it.
So for those subscribe to my partial feed here is my full feed http://www.splendoroftruth.com/curtjester/atom.xml
