    I believe, my good sir, that JayFarrar's first post on the recorder thread was sarcasm in itself. He wasn't actually serious. I would hope and assume you know this already, but after seeing how far you've taken it, felt like it would be a good idea to clear this up myself.

    Lordy I forgot the sarcasm font that day.
    Not only do I tape record every interview. I transcribe them, save the transcription and then also digitally archive the recording.
    With what I write, I get sued if I get something wrong, so I'm what you call careful.
    Edit: Thanks Eagleboy, whomever you are
  3. Well the joke's on me ... maybe it's cuz I knew a reporter who did the exact same thing you described and didn't see the problem with it until s/he lost their career.

    Well while you're waiting you can go fix me a sandwich, gold-digger.

    I don't believe in anonymity, but understand those who do. Your call, not mine.
    I also believe in telling it like it us (or at least how I see it), though ALL your cards don't have to be on the table.
    It's unfortunate that others can't handle one's perspective on the truth (hello bitter cold state!).

    A cautionary tale. Three words: Sloe eyed sabras.

    Better stop lurking in my shrubbery, 68. The restraining order is still in effect.

    Mr./Ms. 68, O learned one, could you please deign to share some of your precious keystrokes with us once more, to tell us what one or both of the two 20,000-post people on this board did that was remotely stalking-like on this thread. There were a few 10,000-post/1,000-post people who also hijacked this thread.
