Fixed an issue processing some Substack feeds. Also now prefers the full-length text of a post (newsletter email?) from Substack.

Ahem. That’s content blob, thank you very much.

@SimonWoods I got really excited thinking this meant I could read Substack feeds in M.b but of course now that I poke around further I realize no, no, I can have those feeds post to my Micro.blog.

@KimberlyHirsh Maybe if Meta makes ActivityPub mainstream then the folks at Substack will be coerced into making that possible, though I'm...

Actually. Converting email feeds into accounts you can follow on Micro.blog would be bloody brilliant. It feels as if it should work since email is an open protocol and all of that, though I have no idea how any of that works.

It would solve that problem for more than just us, I'm sure, since I often see other people looking for a good way to reliably read newsletters. I'm going to use Matter but have yet to sit down and test it with some actual reading.
