We are thinking seriously of truncating our RSS feed (as in not serving full articles, but excerpts). That also means e-mail subscribers would no longer get full articles either, but only what appeared on the RSS feed.
This seems to be the most effective strategy for dealing with evil people who rip off our site. Virtually without exception, they just slurp down what is on the RSS feed.
By going to a truncated feed, they still have our copy, but anyone who reads the purloined copy will need to visit the site to get the full story.
Now I know that includes readers who liked the convenience of getting full articles via RSS or e-mail. But consider: you are also missing our comments section, which is a huge part of what this site is about. So while you might not like the transition, you will probably come to thank us in the end.
