Actually, I do disagree with it. I think it already was somewhat ridiculous; the way we were talking past each other. Fun, of course, or I would've stopped, but also ridiculous.

It is well known that AS can't lie, so what Cadsuane Sedai said here must be the truth.

As an aside: who was better, Semirhage or Nynaeve? I know that the latter's bedside manners were preferable for the patients, but I am not sure that also translated into being a better healer.

Delirium is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Interesting....

But seems like the last 40 posts or so have veered off the original topic around Cadsuane's strength pretty sharply

True, but that's Theoryland. We basically agreed that Cadsuane's strength could most accurately be judged from the references in the books, that what is in the notes was most likely older and less accurate, and no one felt like continuing that debate on which they agreed with all others. So we wandered into other topics. Where, it turned out, people also agreed, but that didn't really stop them from debating until it became a bit embarrassing.

Actually, we know Sumeko called some of Nynaeve's Healing weaves clumsy, and when Nynaeve first saw her Heal, she seemed to indicate that even for her, Sumeko's skill was impressive.

Now, whether this is just a matter of age based experience, ie. a 400 year old woman vs. a 26 year old, or something else, I don't know. Sumeko could just be arrogant like many Yellows are, but I don't think Nynaeve would have cared if she didn't know it to be true.

Now, where Sumeko stood with respect to Semirhage, we don't know.
