I preferred to put it on top. On the bottom forces you to scroll if you
want to collapse it again. Ideally it should be inside the post (so
betweent the second and the third paragraph) but to be honest I didn't
wanted to spend more time parsing DOM elements and better work on other
things (like removing all the invalid blogs) U_U

My approach (since this was all pure JS code) was to only parse the first
level of DOM elements. Since images are inside paragraphs and in general
other images where not that bad*, well I thought it was good enough. The
planet is always going to be a bit messy since it's an aggregation of all
types of contents, it's impossible to have a consistent look.

Same, we capture the language of the posts when people apply, but the
software itself does not allow any type of filtering. Personally I like to
see posts in all languages because it shows the diversity. And this
approach of collapsing the posts help to go through those you don't
understand quickly, as you'd do in your RSS reader.

Thanks for your feedback Sandro.
