Show complete news texts on news list page

I would appreciate very much if the news texts on the news list page would appear as a whole.
No "Read more" should be required (and this link should disappear).

All the news are carefully written and text-sized. They are perfectly self-contained and require to be read as a whole. There is no advantage of chopping them to tiny pieces, with arbitrary cuts e.g. after a colon character. Browsing through the mews list with the possibility to read entire news would support the perfect browsing/reading experience, similar to the old website (which is even better because no arbitrary paging is involved). There is no need to save page space. The user scrolls anyway. But with this current truncated form she would miss all the flesh, as she would rather not click "Read more" just to read one more paragraph, then click Back and "Read more" the next one.

Frankly spoken, I hate this "Read more" thing as this reflects all the stupidness of these clickery-twittery-chattery context-less text snippets (or should say "letter soups" for better) the web is flooded with and no one can read more than 140 characters at once.

Please, please Malte, help me fighting for civilization!!
