Add a button to down-vote clickbait and/or fake news

Can you add a button to vote down clickbait and/or fake news?

Feedly App: I'd like more data-efficient mobile viewing over cellular data connection:

* Server-side readability mode to reduce data over cellular connection.
* Tap an article and Feedly strips out images and formatting on the server-side before passing a text-only article to the device.

An excellent feminist critique of Breaking Bad. We all love a bad boy...

I want to know "What" happened, but not necessarily "When" it happens. 

The essence of G Reader is chronological posts by source, instead of social media, where the priority is when something happened -- posts by time.  

I follow blogs for deep, curated content. I like to review that content by author (Blog) so I get one "voice"/writing style at a time, instead of a cacophony of writing styles/"voices" presented to me in chronological order.
I have a question for avid Google Reader users: what are the aspects of the way Reader works that made it so useful for you? I've heard a number of things floated in the past day -- e.g., the particular sources available, the way of managing read/unread state, various aspects of the UI -- but I'd like to understand better what the concrete things about Reader were which people found the most useful, because I'd like to integrate those ideas into future versions of many Google products, and try to capture that value.

(NB: If you're seeing this via a reshare, please remember to comment on the original post if you want me to see what you're saying!)

Warning: This is not a thread to simply complain about the shutdown, or to ask Google to keep Reader. That's not something that I can help you with, nor is it a decision that I had anything to do with, and this is not a good place to get anyone's attention about that. This thread is a place to talk about specific things which are useful about it so that we can think about good ways to capture that usefulness in the modern world.

Comments which disregard the previous paragraph will simply be deleted. Comments complaining about my deleting those comments will result in me blocking and/or mercilessly mocking you for failing to read instructions. Comments complaining about that will lead to some interesting replies in a combination of languages, probably starting with Yiddish and moving on from there. Comments interested in the Yiddish language should instead go on my post from last night. (, but I should say that I'm not an expert or a fluent speaker of the language)

NB: The comments have filled up! Please check out my comment at the end of the post.

The weekend is over, but I hit a writing milestone: final draft treatment of my latest screenplay. Now with my producer, ready for funding. Itching to begin the screenplay in earnest.
Wait while more posts are being loaded
