Feed complaints

I was just flipping through my aggregator and read Neil’s post about using a news aggregator. I’d have to say, I pretty much agree with the complaints he has. I generally find that I don’t ever make it to the site to read the contents when those sites post only titles or short excerpts of entries. I mean to and sometimes, if the title or excerpt catches my interest in an overwhelming sort of way, I’ll go read it, but most times I just skip it in the interest of time. Besides, if it’s really THAT interesting, someone who does publish full feeds will probably point to it and talk about it and then I’ll know that it’s really worth reading…(This is my current method of reading slashdot, for example.)

So do us all a favor out here in aggregator land, pass us the information!
