    hyperlink/footnote the post to someone who beat you to noting that. If I see a mistake myself, I consider changing it. It's unfair to change it after someone else pointed it out. It's both fair and serves accuracy to link their comment.

    In all honesty though, I don't know that I would call using the term blastocyte Vs blastocyst a glaring error if someone else did it, even if they should know better. Not on a political blog post promoting an interview on another site, and especially not when they've already noted it too boot by the time I came along and saw it. Nevertheless it's a fair observation. I actually do know the diff, but I was waiting for John to get the video up and I fell asleep. When I woke up, he had it up and I slammed the link up too fast. I should have been more careful.

    On the frozen thing, I've talked to people in the field and tons of these guys get thrown out. Statistically, the vast remainder are not going to adopted, they're headed for the waste basket sooner or later, I can show you a video of it happening. And even if everyone single one was thawed and implanted, which will never ever happen, storing them cryogenically for long periods is tantamount to destroying them as viable embryos.

      My point is that storing them cryogenically for five minutes kills the majority of them. You don't have to invoke long periods or whether they are adopted. If they aren't implanted right away, they are being killed wholesale. Period.

      I'm trying to help, DS.
