Sometime during the day on Labor day, the .Text engine running blogs.msdn.com and weblogs.asp.net changed for the worse.
Now, in my RSS reader, if a post is over a few lines long, the rest gets cut off, and you see a very annoying (read more) link. Now, it’s just like the news RSS feeds that give you a headline but make you click to see the rest of the article. They want a visit to the website so that the advertising dollars come in. I have no idea what this change is supposed to accomplish but to lower the number of readers of weblogs.asp.net. I know that I don’t click on “read more“ links, and I’m really glad that .Net Junkies doesn’t do this.
I want all the content in my RSS Reader, not on a website. That’s the point of aggregating instead of “headlining“.
