Step 1: At the end of each journal post, the error appears. It is meant to display the word “by”, it seems.
Only noticed it for the first time when creating my post of 8th Feb, but checking older posts, it is on all of them.

it shows up in different languages as well

I’m not seeing this - is anyone else still seeing it? If I go to https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/fncb-inaturalist/journal/74889 I see
