Stop ... leading ... me ... on ... and ... get ... to ... the ... point ... already!!

(Originally posted on 2-bits, but it didn't really belong there. It belongs here.)

I'm sorry, but I just have to stop all my pompous rantings and rant about a new pet peeve with blogs. I have to say that I am getting really tired...

...of this bit... (click here for the rest)

... where you have to keep clicking and clicking to get to the meat of the article.

I understand the need to keep the front page entry short: To have a leader on that page so the reader can see if the article is interesting, without having the whole front page occupied by one or two articles.

But it is really annoying to encounter a 2-line lead, and click the "read more" link, only to find 3 more words and another link to the "Full Article".

"I'm interested, already!! Now show me the whole rest of the %#^&!^ article!!"
