I've noticed while on the new xelerus, (which hyperlinks ... hyperlinks! :D thanks bmbl!), there is a noticeable confusing issue in the 'latest post' formatting;
If there is a post like:
"good"
it will be displayed as:
"good..."
Meanwhile, if there is a line-break in the first few words:
"@username
I think that if you try changing the UNIDS blahblahblah"
It will display as:
"@username"
(notice the lack of elipses)

Thus the end result is short posts that look long, and long posts that look short, and potentially spammy. (ie, if someone said 'lol' and then did a linebreak)

not exactly the biggest issue out there, but I thought I should point it out.
