reading on the web

I'm not a fan of most web design out there. I know that's not an uncommon opinion. But say you're a site that has some nice articles that people might want to read -- why clutter up the page with sidebars and crap so that the majority of the screen is taken up with things that aren't the intended article?

Take for example: this DevX article about J2ME. Horrible! And you have to click through to get the different pages! Why do we have "pages" on articles on the web? Non-techy news sites are usually even worse about this.

Articles, I'm thinking, should be "printer friendly" to begin with. Having to look for the "make this readable" button is dumb. I'll let you know if the article is any good.
