"Read more" doesn't actually allow me to read more

The "read more" link that's on the right when I'm viewing someone's profile, including my own, doesn't seem to do anything. All the text is already visible, nothing happens when I click the link.
I'm assuming that the link would work if there is something that's not being shown, but why have the link at all when there is nothing more to show?

Testing now... no, even when there is something more to show, the link doesn't work for me, in SeaMonkey or Firefox (latest versions) on XP. It just doesn't respond when I click it.

When viewing a project, the "read more" link will take you to that author's page. On the author page, clicking the "read more" does appear to be sticky, but after 2 clicks I was able to expand that section and read more.

It shouldn't stick like that, and I've submitted a bug report. Thanks!

Thanks Mike. Yes, the author page, that's what I meant.
This seems to be an issue with the Java Script loading on an author's page. Try refreshing the page, that should do it. I can't consistently reproduce this error, but have experienced it. If you can find a solid instance of it I would be very glad to see it.
I can make it happen permanently, if I turn off scripts from Facebook. Since I ALWAYS turn off scripts from Facebook normally, this bug is a PITA.

I can't expand the text on your author page no matter what, in either SeaMonkey or Firefox. I can reload until the cows come home, or click it several times, nothing works for me. On Firefox, I do not use Noscript, and AdBlock+ is switched off.
Sorry, I have no further clues.
