451 days after we hit 100,000 comments, we’ve hit 200,000.
Now, will we get to 300,000 before the election, which will be in late July about 300 days from now?
Maybe, here’s every 20,000 comments plotted by days since we started:
And the election itself will boost things even further.
We like to make a big deal over the comments because it is you coming on here, contributing your thoughts and ideas, that make The Standard what it is. Without all of you, it would just be a dozen or so people arguing with themselves, and if we wanted that we could hang out with the Libertarianz.
So, who was comment 200,000? Well…
We have always noted in posts most of the milestones of significance in this sites history. Every 1000 posts and every 50,000 comments has been posted on.
Why should we stop now?
Yup. Comment 200,000 was Lynn, the father of the site, commenting on how we always make a mention of these milestones.
… and then The Standard exploded in a burst of pure irony.
