It is amazing how much actual anxiety the Read More behaviour generates in me.

It's because I can see text that I can't reveal. It gives me this horrible feeling of incompleteness, that there are things being kept from me.

This is almost *exactly* the same feeling that Twitter's now-discontinued algorithmic timeline-reordering and 'In Case You Missed It' mode did.

Probably also means that I'm far too addicted to this network, so...

If Read More stays, I'm going. It's probably best.

Yeah, and 'anxiety' just upgraded to something like 'actual nausea or motion sickness'.

So.... good bye, everyone. I can't do this or I may literally throw up.

If I toot any more, it will have to be through an interface other than the default Web one.

@natecull I just had an exchange with @Gargron in which he explained that the intent of the "read more" insertion was to only touch posts that did wild things like have a line break after each non-whitespace character.

He's doubled the cutoff, and since then I am not seeing "read more" in my TL.

@natecull Damnit! You're at least half the reason I'm here.

@Gargron #mastodev : Please fix STAT. Thanks

@Gargron Hrm ... OK. I'm not clear on what @TheAdmin is running here (Cloud).

But again, thanks for the quick response.

@natecull

@dredmorbius @natecull @Gargron
He more or less already fixed it by doubling the cutoff. I don't see any "read more"s on m.social now.
