    particular day as Oct 11 was the day of my all time career high post on the Devastating Expose of Mitt Romney's Mistreatment of Mormon Woman, which had 6,600 external shares, 600 plus Tweets, and 3,300 Facebook likes, and 580 plus internal Recs.

    Generally, it seems my average has been 10 times the views as facebook likes so I was hoping to see 33,000 view or more and print it out and post it on my wall, and send it to relatives.

    But, the comment rating function, and Mojo ranker have been broken for over a year and a half, with no where near as much commotion, or complaint, so I'm sort of puzzled.  

    We should label those as broken, or take them down as well.

    I suspect there may be an additional error in how recs are counted for the big rec board after the initial wave.  I understand how a certain fraction is removed every six minutes or whatever the cycle time is, however, for the last month lagging additions are not added in on any discernable cycle time.  Leading to a situation where from the top table summary and Rec List Ranker a post may 15 minutes or more old may pick up 15 to 25 additional rec that show up in the diary but, will not be included in the top counts even after hours.

    I've had this happen about six times in the last couple month alone.

    The update cycle is not updating delayed added recs correctly,

    There have been several instances were the backlog of uncounted recs visible in the main post have been three times the number of a new post that passes it as it sinks  after 20 minutes.  Even if all the original rec were completely zeroed out, if the uncounted one were added correctly shouldn't 15 ore more uncounted ones were being added  in the same cycle sweep still be ahead of a new post with only 4 recs say?  

    I've had cases where backlogs of 15 or 20 rec were still not added to the top count 2 hours later, when their value would have expired anyway.
