Does RSS Reduce a Websites Stickiness?

Other webmasters have told me that RSS feeds decrease a websites stickiness. Do you think RSS reduces the stickiness of a website?

Well, you could probably argue that RSS could both increase and decrease a websites stickiness. The fact is that RSS increases communication with website visitors, if the RSS feed contains legitimate interesting information the reader is more likely to return to the website to learn additional details.

To some extent this question goes to the heart of the argument about full or partial content feeds. Regardless of whether you choose to use full or partial content feeds it is generally a good practice to include occasional links back to your website from the item description field of the RSS feed. If you are providing quality content I think RSS increases a website stickiness.
