    Preventing truncation should be the default option! Upvoting this but I don't necessarily like the idea of adding a gap in the axis to indicate truncation as that can be misunderstood or misinterpreted in many ways. If I had data points as show in the example AND needed to show all of them in this same grouping, I might use a tree map instead of a bar chart.

    On stacked bar charts I've even seen entire categories hidden by truncation (see attached pic). How would a break in the Y-Axis handle a situation like this?
