    a surprise that forcing people to buy a product would result in stocks rising.

    Also, off topic, there are posts here I want to Rec but, besides the diary itself, only one post in the thread has a rec/hide button.

    Health insurance is not health care.

      if you notice that there is no Rec / Hide button.  

      Here's why:
      More and more often, lately, DK is putting diaries on the front page that were "published" a couple of days (sometimes more, sometimes less) earlier.  Since the Rec / Hide buttons are only enabled for 24 hours after a comment is published, that means the diary will have comments that are already too old to Rec / Hide.  

      I suspect that the practical effect of the 24-hour rule is that discussions in a particular diary are less likely to drag on and on and on for days/weeks/months, etc.  

      That's especially fresh in my mind right now because I received a private message today that's a reply from a comment I posted November 7, 2013!  The guy said he couldn't figure out how to reply so he used the message function.  The reason he couldn't figure it out is because there was no Reply button.  The Reply button disappears after a period of time, too; it's much longer than 24 hours but I don't know the exact time period on this.

      They don't win until we quit fighting!
