Yes, it can be boring to read things in grey and white with a little bit of blue, but if all you're looking for is something worth investigating in more detail (which I am) then that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. And in some RSS readers (like Newsblur, the one I use now) I do have the option of seeing the story as the author intended, more or less.
