    Interesting that there’s not a single crossover between comments/view top 10, I suppose when you say critical things of other bloggers their fan base swings by to write one nasty comment and then doesn’t come back (and do so quickly and then stop), while the substantive discussions that drag out for days result in somewhat less comments, but lots of opportunity for those of us following the discussion to check in several times to see what’s new.Report

      I bet the highest comment count posts represent largely two-four League regulars back-n-forth’ing in the comments.

      Comment analysis is going to be hard; the interface is klunky for that sort of thing. Not to mention the fact that people have different handles.Report

    (Looks at the League trash folder.)

    All I have there are two old drafts of posts that eventually went up – “A Note on Athenian Pederasty” and “Why I Hate Politics.” A third, “What Would It Take to Un-Marry You?” I think eventually went into my Cato Policy Analysis “Marriage Against the State,” though in somewhat modified form.

    The rest aren’t mine.Report
