RSS Feeds

I recently learned how RSS feed aggregators copy blog posts verbatim. So there are readers who never visit this blog. I wonder how many? Seems unfair the aggregators can advertise and make money providing you with easier access to this content.

What do you think? Am I being old fashioned? I am going to try limiting to "Short" RSS feeds and please let me know if this does not work for you.

Just sending a short notice about a new posting via RSS makes sense to me. I was surprised after I subscribed to the RSS feed to find that it was the whole posting, except for comments.
One vote for a short RSS version--and for keeping the blog as it is, commercial free.
