You should suck it up and list some examples. They'll only benefit from it.
First one that comes to mind is http://thegreatdiscontent.com. The content is wonderful, but I want to see the images. And then the grid system they set up means I have to keep moving my cursor around if I want to scroll down. Just a personal thought though, it's not like I'm never going on the site again.
I'm not following...? On the site you just linked, I initially see all the images and can scroll down easily without moving my cursor. Is that not the same behavior for you? Only on hover are they covered & reveal the title, which I find the most annoying attribute of that website.
Not sure what screen size you're using, but for me when the page opens my mouse automatically triggers the hover animation.
Damn, this is silly! It just feels broken.
It might be a little heavy handed, but it doesn't feel broken to me.
Here's one: http://estd.in/
I'm more angered by the fact that the whole block triggers a transition, but only a small portion (the text) is actually clickable.
The blur hurts my eyes.
Dribbble. Great, you've covered the whole preview (that I was just scrolling to see) to show me the title and when it was posted. Super good use of space.
Finally someone said it.
But Dribbble makes it quite easy to position your mouse so you can scroll w/o triggering any effect so there's that.
That said, I still find it annoying.
I don't want to position my mouse, I just want it to work. Also, I have a chrome extension to view everything in @2x size by default, which makes it even worse.
