In most cases if you look at the front page of the originating site itself, rather than this (or any other particular) article, only the text "before the break" shows up. Many / most CMS have support for some kind of "jump" or "more" tag -- eg WordPress
-- that controls what gets truncated from archive / frontpage views, gets sent out via RSS, etc. When you click on the headline, you get the full article -- including both that intro text and the "after the jump" note (if they were really sophisticated with their CMS they'd assemble the full article without that, but hardly anybody bothers). Of course when people pass around links to the article itself rather than the front page, that context is lost and the note seems strange.
