They never should have let it get this far

Though I am amused that if you see one of those stories and actually do kind of want to see what it is about, just read the comments. More and more often some kind person has taken one for the team, clicked all those 'next' links, and provides a quick summary in their comment of what it. Usually in a very sarcastic fashion. Those comments will be near the top since they get a lot of likes - if you find one, give 'em a like for taking money out of the pocket of the spammer! :)
