By the way, it took only a single Recommendation to send the latter onto the Recommended list, which suggests some adjustment is needed in that algorithm. (There are actually two Recs for it now, but for a while, there was just one.)
I have several stories to relate as to why I'm going to be participating in the upcoming Conservative thumping that's about to occur.
