Anyone use the “read time” on Post Items?

Some­one re­cently men­tioned that they found the “read time” on home page post-items to be more of an­noy­ing clut­ter than a helpful in­di­ca­tor of whether to read some­thing.

It oc­curred to me that I don’t per­son­ally use them, and in gen­eral it’s im­por­tant for each UI el­e­ment to be pul­ling it’s weight. I’m cu­ri­ous how many peo­ple ac­tively like/​use them?

[Up­date: enough peo­ple have chimed in that I’m rea­son­ably con­fi­dent it’s a good fea­ture to have]
