A Website Feature I just saw and am curious about. On my thread

I noticed a blue button on the OP that said “Summarize This Topic”. Above that it says “There are 57 replies with an estimated read time of 25 minutes.” If I click on that it summarizes to 13 posts. Then there is a blue button on the OP (at the bottom of the post) that says “Show All Posts” so you can restore the hidden content.

I assume this works for anyone, at least if they are logged in?

Oops, thought I’d deleted the post for fear of sticking my foot in my mouth.
It seems the level of what is considered harassment has changed dramatically in some cases. I don’t advocate harassment at any level, but at the same time wonder why some women are obsessed with their appearance, and also shocked when male Neanderthals clumsily approach them.

The “kid in a candy store” analogy comes to mind. Or Lay’s Potato Chips … “Bet you can’t eat just one!” Our society seems to promote that which it then says you shouldn’t have.

Pretty confusing … right?
