(Now I’m starting to sound like a politician, insisting I was taken out of context.) What I meant to say is that if you want other bloggers to link to you, then you need to have an original perspective. As for simply providing a service to your readers, I don’t think you need to have an original perspective. You may still disagree with the point I was trying to make.

I find that labels interfere with that. If you look up curmudgeon, you’ll find it’s not a very nice thing to say about someone, esp for a younger person to say about someone who is older.

Possibly a bad choice of words. I didn’t particularly mean it in a pejorative manner. I kinda aspire to curmudgeonliness myself.

That means we’re going to have to get better at writing synopses and means more feeds with descriptions instead of full content.

They appear convinced that their content must be “actionable” by traders, who comprise the bulk of their subscriber base.

They will argue that they have talked to their customers and that their customers have told them that these headlines are important.

I don’t doubt that they have done this.

That said, I think they generally miss the point that you make, which is that truncated feeds please a minority of consumers of news.

Isn’t it possible that you and I just have a difference of opinion and that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with either of us?
