“More after the jump…” WTF? Why must people insist on using this trite, meaningless phrase? Don’t they know it immediately makes people hate them for using it? I’m pretty sure people know how to scroll down to see if the article continues. And when all that “jump” is is a double-spaced line… WFT!?
I’m not a big fan of this phrase either, but I started using it after talking with readers who 1) came in from the home page and it wasn’t always clear from the portion of the post appearing there if there was additional text at the link; and 2) read via RSS feed and would only click through if it was also obvious there was more to read that way. I realize, though, that it makes it a bit awkward for readers coming in via a link from the Sb home page or elsewhere, though–so I’m certainly open to any suggestions.
