    turn your volume down. If I don't record it loud enough, I get complaints on the other end.

      I can hear the music but the voice becomes completely unintelligible.

      Think about it this way: better to get complaints that the music is too soft than that the words are. The music isn't integral to the message.

      •  Huh? Other than the opening, there really (0+ / 0-)

        isn't any music.

        I don't agree with the diarist's acrimonious attitude, but picking at a 4 second sting that really doesn't affect the rest of the video at all is kind of shallow. The mechanics of the video is actually pretty good.

        I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

    •  Some of the many reasons that people need or want (8+ / 0-)

      transcripts or at the very least summaries or excerpts

      1. too poor to afford the bandwidth for streaming video

      2. too poor to afford a modern enough device to handle the video

      3. hearing impaired and can't hear the video

      4. working two or more jobs and have limited time at Daily Kos

      5. read much faster than most people speak and want to use their time well.

      I can understand that making a transcript is labor intensive. However there is no reason to insult people who request one.

      Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? . . . and respect the dignity of every human being.
