Stem removal

So I've been just sucking it up and dealing with the stem on my Diva for a while, and I finally decided to go for it and chop the whole thing off. I'd been using the stem a little bit in removal, but ultimately I always have to hook my finger up around the rim to break the suction anyways, so I figured as long as I'm fishing around, why deal with the stem too?

I have to say, this thing is about 100x more comfortable without the stem! It never exactly irritated me, but I almost always knew it was in. Now without the stem it's like nothing at all, and even removal is less awkward without the stem getting in my way. So hurrah!
