i've made a regex filter that will remove the fake mentions that appear at the start of ebooks bot posts. this behaviour will be optional, but it's been lacking from mstdn-ebooks for a while.

preliminary testing using starwall-e

looks like it works! it's not generating any fake mentions anymore!

it's now possible to prevent your bot from creating fake mentions.

if i host your bot, and you'd like it to stop creating fake mentions, let me know!

if you (or someone else) run your own bot, you'll need to:
- update the bot to the latest version, preferably via git
- run main.py once
- edit config.json so that "mention_handling" is 0
