A good site design doesn't need a user to press Reader. Do most users even know about it?
A good side design codes the content semantically and uses style sheets to deliver appropriate user experiences to the device the user chooses to browse on.
And of course the only reason I complain is that I have been a passionate reader/subscriber/customer for many many years as a lot of the users have been. I say this cos I care and I says this because the better the site, the better the business, the more LL makes and the more content we get.
Truly a virtuous circle
Or just a daisy chain.
FWIW, I think it's something quite desperate that people find so little time in their lives that they are obliged to enter LuLa via their telephone. I am sometimes obliged to use my smarty-pants 'phone in order to let someone see my website, if only because I absolutely refuse to buy one of those 'tablet' things, thus encumbering my life with even more rubbish, more stuff to carry with me or risk leaving at an unattended table when I find myself in a bar or restaurant and feel the need to visit the restroom.
I like my website, enjoy playing with it and abhor the way the images look when reduced to such tiny proportions - can't even read the captions, for heaven's sake, and hate the concept of sticky fingers making stretchies or pinchies on the surface of the machine!
Why not accept that there is a time and a place for most activities, and that reading LuLa at work isn't one of them? Were I the employer, I'd feel a strong urge to fire anyone caught doing that on my time; of course, there's probably some socialist law preventing such a reaction - well, at least making it illegal.
And nobody has to live like that: simply refuse to be forced into such frantic ways; the tension will have you killing yourself before your time.
Relax, breathe deeply and save up the LuLa experience for when you are comfortably ensconced at home, gentle, soporific drink in one hand and dictionary at the other. You'll have a great night's sleep and feel much better in the morning.
