After the break; what does it mean and where did the phrase originate?

I see this phrase called upon to the point of misuse. And generally when a writer is including something "after the break", it is usually one line break or paragraph break after the original post.
Is that what it means? "Break" in the article? And as a side note, how can we get everyone on earth to stop using this atrociously overused phrase?
