notice that the same content is shown twice on the home page.

1. the latest articles on the top horizontal scroll
2. the same articles on the bottom half of the homepage with bigger pictures and bigger font. also, the mouse hover text you get on the top horizontal articles is the same as the text in the bottom half "expansion".


this wastes a lot of space in the vertical, almost tripling the vertical scrolling. since a lot of us use 16:9 screens, it means unnecessary scrolling to look at the same exact stuff thats present at the top.

Initially i thought it was a mistake or glitch. but its been many weeks since this happened. Personally i think this is a completely ridiculous way of setting up the homepage with the same info twice.

seriously toms, is this a "feature" ? any justification of this design?
and with the right side "features topics", some info is displayed thrice.
