RSS Feeds from Blog Programs

Can someone please explain to me why some blog softwares are not coming with full RSS feeds enabled? Movable Type for a long time came with crap excerpt feeds, but with the the release of MT3, they fixed it so their 1.0, 2.0 and Atom feeds are all now full feeds. The one minor problem is that in an upgrade, they don't upgrade the feeds and leave whatever template was in place. So, anyone who has recently upgraded to MT3, go get the default feeds off the MT site and FIX YOU FEEDS.

So, now that MT is doing it right, why aren't other people? A few feeds I read recently changed over to Wordpress and they ship excerpt feeds now. On some of these sites, I have actually had full feeds turn in to excerpt feeds because of this upgrade.

I'm sorry, but I don't have time to go from site to site reading blog posts. I doubt other people do either. I have over 600 feeds I try to keep up on and having to click through to read things just is not something I am willing to do.

So, people, fix your RSS feeds. Blog software writer, SHIP with full RSS feeds.
