    These “Today’s Headlines” posts aren’t loading links / paragraph breaks in my RSS reader (Feedly) anymore. Was that a deliberate choice, or a bug?

    I second the annoyance over the change to RSS feeds. If it was intentional: seems like the reduced experience isn’t worth the uptick in native site traffic. I’m definitely less likely to consume content long-term, and going backward in user experience leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

  • It was an experiment and the experiment is over. Tomorrow they’ll return to normal.

    I would be curious to hear if anything interesting was learned from the experiment. I appreciate the quick return to full content on RSS feeds. Hopefully it sticks around.
