PandoDaily's Nathaniel Mott. Seriously? Are you really this fucking stupid?

Mott writes an article called “No response: When will news sites catch up to the rest of the Web?” in which he…oh, it doesn’t really matter. Let’s just get to The Stupid.

You’re scanning Twitter for interesting things to read while you’re using your laptop, and you see that someone shared a new report from the Wall Street Journal. You click on it, only to be taken to the mobile version of the Journal’s website, which is nigh unreadable on a desktop browser. Would you abandon the story, fuss with the URL to get the desktop site, or just read it as-is?

Take a look at the URL he’s bitching about. When he says, “fuss with the URL”, what he’s talking about is…REMOVING THE “m” FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE URL. That’s it. That’s all you have to do. Nothing more, nothing less. Go ahead, try it.

He follows that with:

If you’re anything like me, you’ll just close the tab and hope that someone tweets a link to the desktop site later in the day.

No – very few of us are like you. Because you are apparently a spectacularly lazy moron.

He says:

Reuters suffers the same problem.

Yes – and the solution is similar. Simply remove the word “mobile” from the beginning of the URL. It really doesn’t seem that hard to me.

But if this is something that causes Mott consternation, maybe he needs to take some classes on how to be less of an idiot.

  1. Stupid is as stupid does and there are probably other stupid people following his stupid ass into a ditch. Not only could he remove the m. from the URL there is also usually a link on freaking mobile sites that says go to full website. Ugh. My pet peeve is stupid people.
