    The other comment he made about Benghazi being a "hiccup" on the road" is just as unfortunate

    Would be interesting to find out what her political persuasion is and to see if she has had any contact with the Romney campaign and/or others.

    She is obviously and understandably very upset. What she is saying doesn't jive with what Obama said. She wants her son back and that isn't going to happen.

    riddler, TEN THOUSAND VIEWS ON THIS THREAD ALREADY???

    Let me ask you again:

    So you start these threads and then give yourself huge pageviews.

    How much can you make from this nonsense?

    And do your employers know that you HAVE NO INFLUENCE WHATSOEVER HERE------that in fact, you are more likely to dissuade any of us from your employer's point of view by your posting?

    and riddles, you may want to add this:

    Ambassador Stevens' Father Rebukes Romney: "Abhorrent to make this a campaign issue"

    The headline from 4 days ago when the father asked the Romney campaign to cease and desist with their cheap exploitation of the ambassador's murder.

    How are these threads getting these bogus 10000 views? Is it a program used to just get the thread count bumped up? To what purpose? Dies the thread come up more readily in a search or something? If it is some fishy reason, the perp should be banned from creating more threads on RJ.

    I really think you should speak for yourself. You have no idea how Riddler's posts or thread influence others here. Regarding the thread view count, I never even noticed view counts before until you mentioned it. Strange how some do have 10,000 + views. How is that? Weird

    Negatively, I would say. Except for fellow members if his choir. In which what does it matter.

    CJAZ, I'm honestly not trying to ruin riddler's employment opportunity. God knows what mischief he'd be up to if he didn't have this.

    Let me just say that I believe his employers aren't getting full value.

    AND HE MOST CERTAINLY IS NOT GETTING TEN THOUSAND HITS ON THESE THREADS!

    That's called OVER-BILLING.

    ".

It's a very interesting business and the mechanics are even more interesting."

    There are plenty of organizations foolish enough to spend their money on OPINION-MAKERS who can possibly influence tens of thousands------like our very own riddler.

    But Todd, may I call you Todd?..........you are far too busy with your real, very real, real estate business to have any time for such an activity.

    In fact, I'M SURPRISED YOU HAVE TIME TO BE ON RJ 16 HOURS A DAY as it is.

    Ok I'm confused. CJAZ is a real estate agent and you were addressing him. How would he be getting paid, and hence noticing thread count, for thread count?

    I'm curious how the count is driven up like that?

    And why? Here on RJ? Who would care?

    Driving your thread count up is done by 'auto-refresh'. Using it won't make your dick look bigger so most guys here have no use for it.

    BUT if you can find some group, let's say a Republican group for example.......and you can convince those fools that you have access and ability to influence TENS OF THOUSANDS in that target market...

    ........YES, you can make real $$$. But you have to present some measure of your influence--------in this case, pageviews----FAKE PAGEVIEWS.

    So some RightWing group of fools is losing money to riddler. Good for him I suppose.

    You're the one obsessing about "thread views" and how much time people spend here at RJ. Apparently, you have nothing better to do than count things. Poor baby. Maybe you should pick up a hobby or something. Sewing? Knitting? Bridge?

    Stewart used the word optimal first. Obama tactfully threw the word back saying the deaths were not optimal.

    Context. Intelligence. Use them.

    It reeks of SouthBeach who used to brag that admin would never get rid of him because his topics generated thousands of hits.

    NY Times,

    "In an initial national pool report, however, Obama's quote was reported without the context of Stewart's question and his own use of the word "optimal."

    Of course Riddler knew this but considers the lot of you as well as Republicans stupid, so thought to pull this one off and have you suck on it.
