OK, for a while I've been confused about articles here that have phrases like "So how will this change how you will go about making your money? Pass through the break to find out." I never have to wait. The information is always right there, right when it's posted. Is the break that's always referred only like 30 seconds or something? Or is it some inside joke that I never get?

The break, is the break in the flow of the article, that you have to click the link to read it all. What you see before "after the break" is on the summary on the front page of wow.com Once you click the "Read More -->" or the title link, you are effectively after the break.

I thought that might be the case, but it's just that it's ALWAYS worded like an old TV show talking about what might happen after the commercial break. "Will Bob survive the fall from the Empire State building??!?! Tune in and find out after the break!!!"

If you're looking at the story on the front page, it doesn't post the whole story, on the first few paragraphs. then it "breaks". So if you want to read the rest of the story you have to click on the link/title to continue.That's the break

you are probably reading the articles directly on wow.comI read it via a blog reader (Google/reader). Roughly every day there are 15-20 wow.com articles - I only read the summary part, and ONLY expand the articles that are of interest to me via clicking the link back to wow.com website.Short version is great as a summary. I don't read all 20 articles daily...The long version brings me to wow.com to read the entire article, comment with fellow readers (such as this), and they get the ad revenue.I'm even more selective if I go on a weekend trip and return with 60 unread articles... then I only read the summary based on the subject that are of interest to me, and mark all other remaining as 'read'.
