I wonder when are they going to call Georgia.

Looks like Joe Biden is up 10K votes. Trump can not catch up.

1. I think it is an automatic recount

2. Which is irrelevant

There's a reason Arizona only allows a recount if the vote is 200 votes or closer.

3. networks could still project it.

the recount will not change the results by 10K votes, a couple hundreds at most.

7. Are you confusing recounts with a runoff.

I don't know any state on any election which has a blanket no recounts ever rule.

8. There are no automatic recounts in GA.

Candidate can ask for one, or SOS can decide to do one. But nothing requires it to be done.

9. Correct. However the SOS is a rightwinger and has already said he expects to call a recount

This is bullshit BTW because if Georgia calls for it taxpayers pay for it. If they don't and Trump requests it then Trump would have to pay for it.

4. The official certification deadline is several days away. Any recount happens after that. N/T

5. At this point the networks don't care.

If they call (project) GA for Biden it doesn't matter. They already called a winner. They have already projected Biden is president elect. Biden has already given his speech. Biden is already calling himself President elect. If they call GA for Biden and somehow by some miracle it goes for Trump the right wingers will never let them live it down.

So they are in zero momentum at the desks at any network to call any more states. I wouldn't be surprised if AZ, GA, NC, and AK aren't called until the final official certified results are published by the states. I am not saying it is impossible for one or more networks to call it earlier just don't be surprised if they don't.
