If we ask nicely could we know how many unrecs a particular post has?
I gather it has a reserve of negative votes as when I recommended it, the net votes stayed at zero. This makes me curious to know just how many people would unrec this post. I'd like to know that number, unless you'd rather not release it.

I also wonder if you know who voted each way. I would think you would not release that, calling out those people. Just wondering if you can, and even if you do look sometimes.

Thank you all.

1. While I'm not opposed to telling the number...
...I worry that it would open the foodgates of people wanting to know the number for dozens of other threads.

I can tell who voted, and how. To be honest, I can usually figure out why people unrec a post, but it's not readily apparent from that one. And the names don't really provide much of a clue either. Maybe they just don't like good news about President Obama?
