I have a widescreen monitor and this layout is an extreme waste of screen real estate. Half of my screen is empty in the horizontal axis. The vertical axis is spread out too much with empty padding, which requires an excessive amount of scrolling to examine all of the content and comments. Did someone see the artsy-fartsy upgrade from iOS 6 to 7 and say "Hey, we can do that to Slashdot as well"? Why does Slashdot have to look like every generic blog on the planet? Also, why did we go back to the "Load More Comments" Hell? The "Load All Comments" was a better way to handle it. Now you have to play "Hunt the Wumpus" to get more commentary.
