    How do they keep making the same mistake and formatting the articles so that they are unreadable? Is the programmer in first or second grade?
  • by Brad 4/20/2014
    I can't read the articles. The words get cut off on the right. Word-wrap is not happening.
  • by Virgil 4/20/2014
    I cannot read full articles because some of the screen is cut off. And the font is small and I cannot zoom.
