Well it is that time again. We just rolled over the 3000th post on the site.
Number 2000 was in November last year, so it took 7 months – not bad considering that it took 6 months coming up to an election last time. The comments are sitting at 95,000. So we have done about 38,000 since post 2000. Well done all of you commentators. Less trolling, less work for the moderators, and generally more productive discussion right across the political spectrum (well, apart from the trolls).
We’ve lost a few posters in the last 6 months. Steve Pierson and Tane have moved to other things. However we’ve also picked up a number of new posters with their own fields of interest. Since the election, I’ve even been known to try my hand at the gentle art of revving the debate.
Our number of views are now back at election levels after the post-election exhaustion that everyone seemed to get, including the credulous MSM. However that seems to be well and truly over. Our second best daily page view total ever happened last week. But they haven’t reached the mayhem that was election week.
Thanks for all of the interest
