---- Questioning the wisdom of using fat pings to deal with scrapers

@levo: thanks for the clarification!
I just add the full feed to Google Reader (for debugging) and Google Webmaster Tools (as sitemap)
Why would you add the full RSS as a sitemap (and risk that I just might be discovered by scrapers, too) if Google only reads URLs from sitemaps?
I guess that is precisely the part I'm not getting: what is that Google's facility that we are trying to feed the full content to? Google has been accepting URLs either through the submission form in the ancient times or via sitemaps more recently, but I've never heard of them ever accepting the content as such, and only once has MC mentioned it and then - not even a peep more since that 2011 Pubcon.
