Graphics, User Interfaces Ah, Jakob Nielsen. Anyone who has ever been involved with serious document design or web usability will know his name. If you've never heard of him, the best way to describe him would probably be this: he's the Richard Stallman of usability. He has a set of very clear ideas about user interface and document design, which more often than not get in the way of beauty. He has performed a usability study, with real users, on the iPad.

This has bothered me for quite some time. It's especially annoying because the site has been "overhauled" many times in the past few years and this one issue is still present.

Furthermore, why are "Read more" and "comments" separate pages? It's almost as if you're inviting your users to leave when they're done reading more, rather than to continue in to the comments.

We're in the process of a long-planned overhaul that will fix that problem and others. Patience!
