Change about site feeds

Just a little bit of site maintenance here for anyone who subscribes to this blog via a feed. For the time being I am only sending out short site feeds (255 characters) to combat the persistence of "scanners" - those automated post stealers who repost all the stuff you took your time and effort to write, and repost it as its own. Thanks to Kitt at Kittalog for the advice.

Thanks for the heads up on the digest feed. Oh well, it was fun to read while it lasted. (For the record, my digest feed is scraped more often than my full feed.)

Hmmm... if the digests are skimmed more often, maybe I should just kill the feeds altogether? :( Then again, it's less to skim so maybe not?

I miss your full feed.

Full feed! Full feed! I don't read anything that isn't on a feed - I simply don't have time.

Surely your educated readers can tell the difference between you and the re-posted garbage? In any case, goodbye full feeds. It's been fun.
