/. used to be so easy. I could read, scroll, read, scroll...all the way until maybe I have to access older posts. Now, every day the main page jumps as I am reading and then I have to scroll ALL THE WAY BACK UP to where I was reading before. Do you fuckers use computers or what? Do any of the devs of slashdot ever read the front page? Am I not using the Vorpal browser of power? This is some seriously stupid shit and it might have to do with some preference buried somewhere that I never indicated I was interested in enabling.
Ok, I like the idea of adding more content to a page when the reader gets to the bottom, but the behaviour is wrong and causes 5 times more aggravation than the convenience offers in return. Every day I scroll down and then bam, I lose my place and then scroll back up. Slashdot is one of the sites that I watch regularly and I scan the headlines until I see old shit passing by alot of physorg and googlenews repeats.
Why does the front page do this and why can't it be improved? Am I the only one who uses a mouse in an operating system with a graphical user interface?
What Fuck Thee?
