"Dear Washington Post and every other internet newspaper: if you have a long article, PUT IT ON ONE PAGE. My browser isn't paper, you don't need to break it up into 6 pages"

I agree with the title of this reddit thread.

A good comment from chakalakasp:

The funny thing is that many studies (funded by the newspapers) show that most readers won't read past the "jump" (the spot on a page that says "story continues on page A4") in a real life hold-in-your-hands newspaper

I also like gruber's comment, from two months ago:

I must have some weird strain of dyslexia. Whenever I see a link named "Next Page", I think it says "Stop Reading and Close This Tab".
