I don't hear anyone talking about how to stop the content thieves. Yes, content scrapers are the scum of the web, but there are ways to stop them. First, you should <not> deliver your entire article through RSS, only a a portion of it. This will encourage your readers to visit your site anyway and take away the easiest avenue for people to steal your content.
If you are still having trouble with people stealing your content, then you should try one of the services specifically meant to stop content scrapers... <snip>
You should absolutely fight back, dont let the thieves win.
Mod's note: My adding "not" to the above post to fix an apparent typo doesn't suggest that I necessarily endorse this approach. I can see how partial pings or fat pings can each create their own problems.
[edit reason] added "not" and removed specifics [/edit]
