Hmmm... well having not tried it thus far I'll trust to your report.
Dev.to is open source - perhaps we should take a poke at the codes to see if there's a quick win?
EDIT: Never mind, we've been one-upped: github.com/thepracticaldev/dev.to/...
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
