    The site works very well for me. I’m pretty much at a loss to understand what it is that could be improved.
    The ads a distraction? They might as well not exist for all the attention they get from me.
    The format seems about as perfect as it could be, what on Earth would be the alternative? Anything I want to read is easy to find. Posting just a short excerpt with the rest of the story opened at the discretion of the reader is the only workable way to display the listings.
    What would be the alternative?
    I guess when you opened the site you would see a cover, with copy on it? Each day/week/month one story would be cover featured, with a few teasers alerting the viewer to other featured content?
    Each of the cover featured stories could be accessed directly by clicking on the cover copy?
    The viewer could alternately open the “magazine” and view a table of contents with a full listing of that day’s/week’s/month’s content?
    The thing as it stands works just fine for me. I check the site, scroll down the listings, and click on anything which captures my attention.

      Hey Patford. I’m glad you like the site. I would prefer that everybody liked the site. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, the consensus among the bloggers and general readers I’ve talked to is that there are serious problems.

      There are extensive comments threads over at HU on several posts where people talk about exactly what they see as wrong with the site and why. You could wander over there if you’re curious as to why some are frustrated.
