I notice that, more and more, people link to the print-friendly version of articles when just linking for reading on the web. The reasons are obvious—these designs being less cluttered and often easier to read, not just easier to print. But I wonder if the sites this happens to are paying attention to this and, if so, if they care. If they did, it'd be pretty easy to not accept outside links to those pages—redirecting them to the normal version, unless referred by the "print this page" link. More importantly, perhaps they should think about what's so offensive in their normal design that makes people go to this extra effort (and it's not just advertising, because the print-friendly versions often still have that). Or maybe they shouldn't. I dunno. Not pretending to have any strong opinion on the subject. Or even a worthwhile one. Why are you still here?
