    wp-o-matic like ANY other RSS aggregator pulls only that content which is available in the feed. Usually the RSS feeds contain the descriptions (excerpts) linked to the full articles. So to pull the full articles but not just excerpts, the RSS aggregator must be able to parse the HTML pages with original articles. The only RSS arrgegator that can do it is CyberSEO plugin for WordPress.

    Here is an example:
    1) The Amazon RSS feed with short descriptions: http://www.amazon.com/rss/bestsellers/229677?tag=pv0a5-20
    2) The sample autoblog which pulls content from the Amazon RSS feed mentioned above: http://www.cyberseo.net/demo/amazon-store-blog/category/e-commerce-software/

    Click the "Read More" button to see the full product description which is NOT available in the syndicated feed.

    The same technique can be applied to any other RSS feed which contains the short excerpts only.
