If you didn't have to 'jump' to read the article you could read the whole thing in your feed reader and you wouldn't see any of the ads.

After the jump is a holdover from newsprint. If you have a story that's on two pages, the "continued on page 5" is the "the jump."

Ridding the world of the phrase "after the jump" is a worthy cause.I totally understand why blogs cut off the feeds for increased page views, but A LOT of folks are tired of reading that same annoying phrase about 100 times a day. Just come up with something else to say.

Man. People will complain about anything, I swear.

So true, people complain about anything.Reading that phrase takes less than a second, even more if your brain is already wired to identify and skip it.

they may have a good reason, but its still annoying as hell. makes my morning feed reading take a whole hell of a lot longer when half of the blogs do this.

@KrakiThe point of feeds is to give you a taste of the content so that if you aren't interested in anything, you don't have to go to the site to find that out. You can pick and choose where you go and what you read all of, based on that preview. It is not so that you can read the whole site without actually visiting it. How exactly does clicking links make your read "a whole hell of a lot longer? Are you on dialup?

You are seriously a bunch of babies.After the jump. It's three words. Cry more. You're worse than the QQs the article refers to.And on that note: I really don't mind grinding for a quest. If you've played Everquest, you know that collection quests are just part of the game, and if you're unlucky enough to kill 200 of something before your quest is over, so be it.If every quest was "Hey, go kill a boss" or "Hey, go talk to this guy", the month/two month quick run to level 70 would be turned into a week/two week run.Is it not boring enough being level 70 and doing the same things over and over? Would you rather grind for quests and levels than just grind for gear?I don't see the logic.
