Always put the link in the front page blurb

Parent article: Welcome to the new LWN.net!
Please, always include the link to the off-site article in the blurb that appears on the front page, not just off the "Full story" page. It looks as though that link is never on the front page if there's a "Full story" link.
I switched to LWN's daily page because I got tired of having to click through a completely extraneous page to get to the actual article at sites like Newsforge. I liked the old daily updates page, donated money to the site when you asked for contributions (which reminds me, where's the link to the contributors page?) and was considering buying a text ad just to express my support. But I'm going to have to reconsider if you're going to a "hide the link to generate more page impressions" model.
