St. Hillary, The Annoited in Iowa. A mother with a dying daughter approached Hillary.

Last edited Sun Aug 16, 2015, 11:44 AM - Edit history (3)

The mother asked that Hillary support medical marijuana.

Hillary's response: It needs more research.

That is about as cold as Dukakis' response to the hypothetical question of what would he do if someone killed his wife.


ADDENDUM: After linking to the C-span of her walk at the Iowa State Fair, I am less unhappy about Hillary's response to the mom. While she offered nothing more specific in response to the mother, she did offer support. Still, what does that mean? Does it mean putting research money into the benefits and improved treatment that uses medical marijuana? Does it mean asking her attorney general to lay off prosecuting its use?

The link is about 12 posts down.

Her response begins at 8:40 in the link.

82. I'm happy that it turned out to be inaccurate.

That type of response would be eerily similar to the climate-change deniers response
of "it needs more research" (i.e. lets study it ad infinitum before we take any action)

Right now, it is mostly a States Rights issue. I suppose it could be taken up as a Federal
issue if some politician at that level has the chudspah to push it. Obama didn't. It has
the potential to become another divisive moral issue that never gets resolved, like abortion,
which the right will use to paint the Dems as pro-drug, soft-on-crime, blah blah blah.

Just an aside: why do "Libertarians" caucus with Republicans ? Republicans hate
the notion of personal freedom (except in the case of profiteering, pollution, segregation ....)

"Just an aside: why do "Libertarians" caucus with Republicans ? Republicans hate

194. Libertarianism is based on self-serving interest sociopathy.

.


While Libertarians enjoy plugging themselves into the public largesse, they deride money going to others.


This is why you see so many government socialists, such as military, police, teachers, and firefighters, etc. complain about others in the public sector getting money. They enjoy the benefits that they receive, but look at others as a loss to their household wealth. I have several Tea Partiers in my neighborhood who are perfect examples of this. One is retired Navy, collecting his pension and working for a government defense contractor, taking his property tax deduction, hitting the commissary, the exchanges, etc. Another is a state trooper, who was given the opportunity to escape from Camden and now turned his back on them. Another is a Army guy, still in the National Guard, who is plugged into every program possible. What do they have in common, they want to cut all other public and social services because it impacts the local, state, and federal taxes they have to pay. One Tea Partier was a staunch supporter of our public schools, until her last child graduated high school, months later she was fighting to cut school funding because it no longer benefited her family.


The Kochs and other billionaires appear to be caught up in a world where the wealthy have to outdo each other. It's not about accumulating wealth, it's about being the wealthiest. Additionally, it is normal for the bourgeoisie to try and convert their wealth into political power. Most do not do it for the betterment of society, but to bolster their own personal portfolio and new found social class. This is contrary to most democrat positions, especially in the areas of labor, social services, environment, etc..

153. And this is what REALLY happened....

http://www.politico.com/story/2015/08/hillary-clinton-drops-her-guard-in-iowa-121394.html

Sanders, however, did not take questions from the public as candidates on the box usually do — and his day at the fair was brief as he rushed passed Iowans in a hurried brisk walk, cameramen pushing and jabbing annoyed bystanders out of the way.

Clinton, by contrast, took her time, spending about an hour and a half at the fair as she inched along and people approached. A 30-something Iowan mother named April Stumpf asked her to support legalizing medicinal marijuana nationally. Stumpf’s three-year-old daughter, Quinn, has a severe case of epilepsy and is about to die, she explained to Clinton. Her doctors recommend medical marijuana to ease the pain, but it’s hard to get because it’s illegal to sell in Iowa. The state allows residents to get medical marijuana cards and purchase the drug out of state — but often states that sell it require patients to be present for purchase, and Quinn is too sick to travel.

“She’s not expected to live past … ” her voice trailed off. “I mean, she can go at any time.”

Clinton agreed that there should be more research on the subject. And when Stumpf walked away, she dispatched her aides to get her contact information as the crowd continued onward.

218. no. there is no evidence she was saying, we do nothing until research.

 

correct, all of it was not included, like every indication she could communicate that she was agreeing with the woman. shaking head yes and verbally saying yes.

and the research part in know way would indicate she was denying medical marijuana, but again, agree with what the woman was saying... actually following the womans statement, agreeing with the woman that yes, they need to do research on this stuff.....

137. Yep we know

Hillary is human. Even a Bernie zealot like me knows that. I suspect the original article was planted by a Hillary supporter wishing to further Hillary's announced image of downtrodden female with a kind heart and a saintly mother unfairly attacked. I ain't buying it.
What I think the public deserves is discussion of issues on which Hillary and the other democratic candidates disagree.
But Hillary prefers to attack the republican clown car rather than discuss the issues. If you just want an attack dog, get Biden, he is even more viscous, as witnessed in the vice presidential debates.
Hillary does not get it. This election is about the people not her chances of winning over the bozo republican candidates..

262. Your addendum is STILL inaccurate.

ADDENDUM: After linking to the C-span of her walk at the Iowa State Fair, I am less unhappy about Hillary's response to the mom. While she offered nothing more specific in response to the mother, she did offer support. Still, what does that mean? Does it mean putting research money into the benefits and improved treatment that uses medical marijuana? Does it mean asking her attorney general to lay off prosecuting its use?



She expressed two distinct thoughts.

That she would support the mother, specifically....

AND

More research is needed, as well.

With more research, the mother wouldn't have to endure the grief she's having to deal with to get the meds for her child.

Your context is out of line. And your "anointed" headline is straight out of right wing media. Since you purported to not know anything about that, here's the source:

This shows yet again Clinton's incredible lack of genuine empathy and how hollow her fucking 'family biography' ads are.

So Clinton, you say you care about mothers and daughters in your ad. You tout Dorothy and all of the other Dorothy's like yours. But when a Dorothy comes to you and asks your stance on medical marijuana for her child, you dismiss her with 'it needs more research' so your optics don't look like you might be supporting those damned pot smoking hippies.

You're just annoyed that your premise has been disproven, and you're taking it out on me. Sorry you are so upset, but that's not going to change the fact that Clinton agreed with the mother and reached out to HELP her. Darn the bad luck for you, I guess.

Which makes me wonder why someone would LIE about something that is so easily disproved. My guess is for people like you. Who will jump on anything that paints HRC in a negative light. Who won't click on the links provided by others about the actual exchange.

Fair Goer: I also wanted to let you know I am a mother of a severely disabled child. She's on 14 different medications right now. Methadone, morphine and uhm....

HRC: Tell me how old she is?

FG: She is only 3

HRC: What's her....

FG: Her name is Quinn

HRC: What's Quinn's

FG: She is undiagnosed. She has severe epilepsy. Heart seizures they can't stop. She arches severely, she's on a feeding tube'

HRC: Oh, wow.

FG: She is not expected to live very long, but you know I have been advocating for the medical cannabis.

HRC: Yes, yes (shaking head yes)

FG: on a nationwide level. We would love your support for medical purpose

HRC: (shaking head yes) Yes and to do the research to know exactly

FG: Her meds that she is on now will kill her faster than her disease. So just wanted to introduce myself and thank you for coming out to the State Fair

HRC: I will certainly support it. I have and I will continue to support it

FG: Thank you

HRC: and I want to get the research going on it

FG: Yes, she's part of a clinical trial right now

HRC: good. good
(cross chatting)

FG: I am looking for alternatives because the FDA approved meds are

HRC: Because they are so strong, especially for a little kid

FG: she's only 3, she gorgeous, she deserves so much. Thank you so much, thank you.

HRC: Let me see. Will you give my spokesman your name address and stuff, ok.

FG:Yeah, yeah.



All this OP has proven is that they are a big liar. They should delete the OP. They should be ashamed of themselves for trying to smear a DEMOCRATIC candidate on Democratic Underground. If the OP refuses, the Hosts should lock it.

There is nothing vague or equivocal about that statement. Your false paraphrase seems to have (to be kind) duped exactly three people. The majority of Sanders supporters on this thread have called you out on the lie and refused to jump on the chance to make the Senator look good via a falsehood. They reflect Bernie's own honesty.

http://www.tampabay.com/news/politics/stateroundup/on-the-road-with-hillary-clinton-as-she-surprisingly-connects-with-voters/2241358

"She brought me to tears. I am a tough, cranky, hard-a-- New Englander, and she touched my heart today," businesswoman Denise Andrews said after attending a town hall meeting in Exeter, N.H.

News coverage of Clinton's Exeter appearance focused on her reaction to "offensive, outrageous" Trump, rather than her interaction with the mother of a 5-year-old girl battling cancer or the young man drowning in college loans and unable to find a job. ("You're a good-looking young man. You ought to be out in the world making your way," Clinton said, sounding like a grandma.)

"She has so much compassion, and it shows," said middle school teacher Sarah Harris, the mother of that girl close to beating Stage 4 liver cancer. "She's a person, she's a grandmother, she's somebody's mother."

"She is so knowledgeable in so many areas, and she connects really well with folks. The longer the campaign goes, the better for her, I think, because more people will see her and get past all that noise."

8. Wow, 'hippy-dippy'! Now that is a revealing use of a slam against Democrats.

Explains a lot I must say.

Bernie btw, is not afraid of any labels, he simply tells the truth. And that is why he continues to surge among the people. Sick to death of calculating politicians who worry more about upsetting Republicans, who btw, were also among the 'hippy dippies' themselves, than about doing what is right for the people.

Afraid to stand up, doesn't make for a good leader.

Dems certainly don't view medical marijuana as a 'hippy dippie' issue. So what is Hillary worried about, most of THEM smoke pot, any I ever knew anyhow. So who is she worried about? Or this more of the 'tough on crime' stand she has always supported, the policies that have put more AAs in prison than other demographic?

Thank the gods we have a candidate who wants to BAN private prisons and isn't afraid to say so. Who is for medical marijuana and isn't afraid to say so.

But maybe she is just for keeping the drug war going. I can't say since it's hard to find where she stands on the issues.

28. What does it "explain" Sabrina? Hmmmm? Do tell, I'm all ears.

Sounds like you're saying I'm not a "Democrat," or something. How low can you go?

You're really obvious, not in a good way, either. You goad and bait, you snidely insult, and then you get hurt feelings when someone notices your conduct.

If "Bernie tells the truth" then why did he make a nasty deal with Lockheed Martin to put the worst military aircraft in history in Burlington? He sure didn't tell the truth there. And why does he have such a boneheaded stance on guns? What kind of truth is that? But this isn't about Bernie, anyway. You always want to fight about him--go do that with someone who cares what you think.

Way to not read what I wrote either--in your eagerness to slam me--as you always do, it's like a sport with you--you again failed to actually look at the words I wrote and translate them into thoughts. You just had to leap and attack. As. You. Do.

I said the MEDIA would TWIST what she had to say--as they do--a lot like what you're doing with me. Way to prove the point with your own example--"Look at MADem, slamming Democrats....EXPLAINS A LOT, I must SAY....."

That's some sick shit. All you got, I guess...?

SMH. You really might think about getting another hobby. Coming after me like you do, again and again, with childish "explains a lot" snark, reveals more about you than you realize.

You would benefit from a more mature approach to conversation--your petty name - calling and snide insinuations just don't work, and say PLENTY about you.

The ones that can't deviate from a partisan mindset, even in the face of overwhelming proof...well, ya gotta wonder about that.

I think this OP is pure disruption, nothing more--it's also completely untrue, that's been demonstrated, and the 22 people who "rec'd" this piece of shit (the OP is included among them--what kind of person recs their own post?

Free the Weed, for the sick and the non-drinkers now! I lost a good friend to alcohol when his shop started hair testing. His hair was to his waist, cut it off and started drinking. He is not a good drunk, at all.

Why can't they just use the study Nixon ordered and suppressed in the '70s?! It showed it as safe and non-addictive; it showed the arrests cause more harm than the use of cannabis, iirc.

72. So what if the media twists what she says? And what's wrong with being a 'hippy dippie'?

Why would she care about being called something associated with Democrats? Why not say 'thank you' and not worry about what the irrelevant Corporate media and Republicans 'think'? They DON'T think.

I am sure most Democrats consider that to be a compliment. 'The hippies were right' should be a campaign slogan and would probably GET votes. Then what would they say? Shove it in their faces. Stand up to them! Like Bernie does. That's what people want, no more of this catering to lunatics, reaching across the aisle nonsense.

The fact that she worries about what ignorant Republicans and a dying media might think, means she either doesn't understand how angry the people are or is out of touch with the PEOPLE who are in no way represented by Republicans, which is why so many don't even bother to vote, because Repubs are insane and Dems won't stand up to them.

I like Bernie Sanders and plan to vote for him in the primary, but he isn't the second coming of Christ. He's an outspoken champion for economic justice and for giving power to ordinary people.

it roll.

The liberals on the court will want to light one up, the conservatives will fall back on state's rights.

Win-win.

It's not the sixties, but media hatchet jobs on candidates have been happening since the third POTUS took office. If HRC didn't fire up a j up in Wellesley College in her youth, I'd be surprised. Could she admit it nowadays? The media would have her mainlining heroin in the combat zone by the time they got through.

But hey, keep flogging this issue like it's a deal breaker. It's not. You just explained why in your post. The states are going to carry this shit over the finish line--the federal government will bring up the rear.

And like I said, I support legalization. Not "medical mj." Not "decriminalization." I think anyone of legal age should be permitted to walk into the weed store and buy themselves some weed. I think it should be taxed, not robustly, but well enough, like most "sin" taxes on booze and cigarettes. I think the handy people with green thumbs should be allowed to grow themselves some weed. I think people should just back the hell off and away from people who want to smoke their weed.

Leave 'em be. Legalize it.

But I can see why HRC dances around the issue--not everyone realizes it's harmless. They'll learn, eventually, but they aren't there quite yet.

305. I like you, MA-- but I really think you need to get out of yr. East Coast conventional wisdom bubble

Pot Legalization (and certainly, medical marijuana) is by no means and in no way, shape, or form, just "hippie-dippy" shit, anymore. In fact, a majority of voters support it, not just in unpopulated jerkwater nowhere states like California, (with its meager 34 million residents) but also in states like Ohio- either of which may very well be the next to legalize.

Oh, I also hear tell that Ohio is a sort of important swing state. As is Colorado. Maybe a Candidate standing up for legalization could motivate Ohio voters to come to the polls who otherwise might stay home or are undecided...

So it's possible, is it not, that getting out in front of this thing - clearly, unequivocally- could actually be GOOD politics, for Hillary Clinton?

That said, I do think the OP misrepresented what happened. However, she did seem to be in a bit of a hurry to shut the conversation down, lest she be forced to take a more concrete stand or give a clear quote. If she's not following Debbie Wasserman-Schultz's playbook on medical marijuana- namely, arrest as many pot smoking cancer patients as possible- well, I suppose that's something.

But again, the thinking seems to be that this is somehow an issue to be avoided, is old-school thinking and doesn't recognize the fact that Millennials, in particular, are supportive of legalization just as they're supportive of marriage equality.

Since I have spent half my life outside USA, and much of it away from east coast, as well, I think your characterization is a bit off. Yes, I have family and roots here, but New England is not my only home base and the conventions of this region do not rule my thought process.

And if you don't think there isn't a subset of people who still think MJ is the DEVIL WEED, I have a bridge to sell you. Sanjay Gupta's special was groundbreaking BECAUSE of those people...many of whom still are not convinced. As I have said, repeatedly on this site, we are at a TIPPING POINT re: this issue. We are not quite there yet, but we're moving in that direction. This election cycle will help, but it may take as much as five years, maybe ten, to go coast-to-coast on this issue.

Look, this thread was a piece of shit from the get-go. It was a gross misrepresentation, it was shameful, and I guess someone alerted on it and it wasn't hidden, even though we used to prize accuracy and truth here no matter what the topic--but that's gone by the wayside.

10. Didn't you leave out something about the interaction......

A 30-something Iowan mother named April Stumpf asked her to support legalizing medicinal marijuana nationally. Stumpf’s three-year-old daughter, Quinn, has a severe case of epilepsy and is about to die, she explained to Clinton. Her doctors recommend medical marijuana to ease the pain, but it’s hard to get because it’s illegal to sell in Iowa. The state allows residents to get medical marijuana cards and purchase the drug out of state — but often states that sell it require patients to be present for purchase, and Quinn is too sick to travel.

“She’s not expected to live past … ” her voice trailed off. “I mean, she can go at any time.”

Clinton agreed that there should be more research on the subject. And when Stumpf walked away, she dispatched her aides to get her contact information as the crowd continued onward.


I'd say she'd be making a effort. Apparently there is a need to lie, its becoming a standard here.

The research is done actually. And sending your aides is one thing but having the courage to do it face to face even with the camera rolling is quite another.

Is Clinton evil? Oh, good lord no. But she does come across so often as calculating how she will look or might be perceived. Drop the damned "I have been and continue to be always running for president' persona and be real with people. If she can't even do so with those who support her, then that is an optics problem far worse than looking like a fucking hippie.

292. I'm sorry I have to disagree.

Clinton has always said "more research" and called marijuana a "gateway drug" and said it needs to be "enforced." This was the first time she has ever said "I support it and will continue to support it" to my knowledge.

There is obviously going to be calculation on this issue because 1) the majority of Americans support it 2) it will likely be a party plank and 3) it will get a lot of votes from white males who would normally vote Republican (we saw this in the exit polls in 2012, Obama won in Colorado by 51.5%, marijuana legalization won by 55.32%).

The Democratic nominee will have to address it.

290. "I support it and will continue to support it."

That was the first strong statement from Clinton on this subject matter that I am aware of (yes she has said stuff to that ends before but conditioned on research).

The thing is marijuana legalization will be a party plank, so it cannot hurt to be for legalization.

11. I notice...

.... there are no quotation marks in "Hillary's response". So, is that all she said? Four words? Or is it something you heard, read, made up, or cherry picked from a longer response for your own purposes? And if you know what she said, then you should know what the woman's response was. So, what was the woman's reaction to Hillary's statement?

Hillary said she SUPPORTS medical MJ--she said YES YES .... AND she also wants more research.

The OP is just not at all accurate. It is completely and utterly untrue.

13. We don't need more research on it

We need to legalize it. For one thing, it's part of the incarceration explosion. For another, the "we need more research" is what we;ve been told by prohibitionists for generations, all the while working to make sure that research is never done.

And this was about medical, not recreational, denying medical is even harder to defend.

It doesn't matter much to me that she got the person's contact #, this is a campaign, she is taking stands on issues, and her stand on mmj is apparently "we need more research".

30. A quick backstory

Dupont invented nylon but they had to compete with the hemp industry . Through political connections they pushed for criminalisation . And here we are today still arguing about hemp when other countries make a fortune in it's production .

http://www.world-mysteries.com/marijuana1.htm

There are a lot of sites that deal with the information so if you want to look further into it have a dig . The only issue I have is that this archaic political stance still has resonance today . Just based of what Hillary stated shows that the establishment are still locked in the last century .

Change and progress is needed . I would hope that Hillary would be for legilisation as the net community and taxation benefits combined with the law enforcement cost savings are a win/win for everyone concerned .

59. OK

I am aware of a lot of the history on its legalization, sorry, I thought perhaps you were saying Dupont is behind Hillary's response, what you are referring to is real but happened a long time ago. You're correct that we're still dealing with it today in some ways, many forces against legalization, including police unions, prison guard unions, pharmaceuticals that market more harmful but legal prescription painkillers, etc.

I am certainly on your side of this issue.

I just watched the actual video footage of the woman talking to Hillary, Hillary did say she supports it but twice spoke of the need to do more research, not good enough although it sounds better than the OP implied, no way to tell if it is in fact better than the OP implied or if she is just saying she supports it while she obstructs it hiding behind "research". We've seen that movie for a long long time.

92. A fair point ...

But my inference was not on Hillary but on the political stance ALL politicians for a long time have advocated . I just hope that one day a progressive leader will be able to sell the taxation and enforcement savings component .

It is a viper's nest of issues I'm sure but I could go on and on with the net societal and financial benefits this would generate .

And it is good to know Hillary supports it but the "need's more research" component is what worries me . The FDA can get pharma drugs out in a timely manner however a natural known substance still requires investigation is a bit of a blow .

But it is early in the election so I am hoping she can better stipulate her stance on these issues .

Also you are right that right now everyone is on edge around here and some of the postings are rather "sharp" in their delivery . I just hope when the blood simmers back down everyone can try to work towards bettering the situation .

I think those are accurate quotes.

So her response was better than the article suggested. It still felt like a cop-out to me, a way to say she supports it but putting it off until more research is done. An important issue to a lot of people, IMO not a good response. YMMV of course.

80. There in lies the catch 22.

It's difficult to do the research because marijuana is listed as a Schedule 1 drug by the federal government – the strictest level of regulation for a controlled substance.

Even though it may be legal in many states, it's still illegal to even run medical tests with it on the federal level. This has severely hampered clinical research into it's effects. In spite of that, limited testing on it has shown positive results on at least one of her listed symptoms, Epilepsy.

So if she wasn't waffling then she's ignorant of the current laws on medical marijuana that make research extremely difficult. Considering she's a career politician I consider ignorance of the law to be a much worse sin than taking a non-stance. Believe it or not I was giving her the benefit of the doubt when I went with triangulation.


There has to be some legalization of the drug done at the federal level, even if it's just changing the scheduling of the drug, before it can be legally researched. What part of this is hard to understand?

edit: Going to retract the second part. I went back and watched the video for a third time with the volume all the way up. And while she never said she agreed with legalizing marijuana, she was nodding her head along as the lady talked about legalizing it. I'll assume that is tacit approval for legalizing.

Also, the Dukakis story is an example of a Democrat who opposed the death penalty at a time when that position was even less popular than it is today. Exactly what point were you trying to make with that example? You said Dukakis was "cold" because he wouldn't change his position and say that he WAS in favor of state execution if the victim was his own family.

151. Too bad you didn't post the full story and follow-up. That's pretty pathetic:

http://www.politico.com/story/2015/08/hillary-clinton-drops-her-guard-in-iowa-121394.html#ixzz3izHDGVOp

Sanders, however, did not take questions from the public as candidates on the box usually do — and his day at the fair was brief as he rushed passed Iowans in a hurried brisk walk, cameramen pushing and jabbing annoyed bystanders out of the way.

Clinton, by contrast, took her time, spending about an hour and a half at the fair as she inched along and people approached. A 30-something Iowan mother named April Stumpf asked her to support legalizing medicinal marijuana nationally. Stumpf’s three-year-old daughter, Quinn, has a severe case of epilepsy and is about to die, she explained to Clinton. Her doctors recommend medical marijuana to ease the pain, but it’s hard to get because it’s illegal to sell in Iowa. The state allows residents to get medical marijuana cards and purchase the drug out of state — but often states that sell it require patients to be present for purchase, and Quinn is too sick to travel.

“She’s not expected to live past … ” her voice trailed off. “I mean, she can go at any time.”

Clinton agreed that there should be more research on the subject. And when Stumpf walked away, she dispatched her aides to get her contact information as the crowd continued onward.


You should be ashamed of yourself for not including EVERYTHING that happened.

http://www.c-span.org/video/?327525-9/presidential-candidate-hillary-clinton-meetandgreet-iowa-state-fair-part-2

Why couldn't you give an honest summary of the encounter? Did you mention that Clinton held her hands as the mother was speaking? Did you mention the concern that Clinton had during the discussion?

Now we see why Sanders isn't going to "attack" Hillary Clinton, he's got enough followers perfectly willing to attack for him.

She also asked for the person to give her contact information. That is what they do when they want to use you in future policy speeches. That way they can say "There was a person down in X that liked Y and I support that person and Y."

Truly. The edits do not change my opinion. I watched the video myself, and the title of the OP was simply incorrect. Why would someone do that to a Democratic candidate for the presidential nomination? That's my question? How does that benefit a different candidate in any way? It does not. It hurts the other candidate, by reference.

The original form of this post was not, in any way, correct about Clinton's response to that poor mother. Not at all. It was a clear mischaracterization of what she said.

When supporters of another candidate resort to false reporting of things, it harms the candidate they support. It's a very bad strategy.

One of clinton's oxford buddies was on c-span confirmed that clinton did not inhale but tried like hell. Clinton's oxford buddy that was on c-span also said they were smoking tobacco laced with hash, which wa popular with the kids at that time in the U.K. For non smokers, like clinton, to inhale tobacco, you be coughing up a lung too.


In an interview with Yahoo News' Katie Couric, Sanders said he tried marijuana but wasn't a fan.

"Because I coughed a lot, I don't know," he said. "I smoked marijuana twice, didn't quite work for me. ... It's not my thing, but it is the thing of a whole lot of people."

274. True.

And we now have a list of 38 people who will support a lie even when they know it's a lie. Self-incrimination at its finest.

279. 90 % of who will be gone after Clinton wins the primary...

The TOS will take care of that.

284. I've bookmarked this thread.

From time to time I'll kick it as the rec list slowly converts to a wall of of "Name Removed".

Now that tickles me.

--- sorry, I can't resist.

303. Thanks for reminding me.

Retrospectively, I believe the software removes the rec if the reccer is removed. Accordingly, there probably won't be any "Name Removed" recs.

That said, when I posted yesterday, there were 37 recs. As of this writing there are 35. As I didn't (and won't) keep a record of who recced, I have no way of knowing where those two recs went - whether they were reversed or the poster(s) banished.

A running tally, then, will have to do.

See ya next bump!

304. Saving the list with a screen shot works.

Gives you a permanent record that does not disappear.
