    A new year, a new set of head-sticks!

    a happy & safe new year to you as well, mr. farley, and your gang of revolutionary, unkempt fellows.

    everytime i open this site, i almost immediately feel intellectually inadequate. i am forced to confront just how little i know, and how pathetic my own analytical abilities are, by comparison to the denizons who grace your humble cyber abode. that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

  4. Uncle Ebeneezer:

    Thanks everyone here at LGM (posters and commentors) for another fun and edifying year.

  5. Erik Loomis:

    I win! Sort of. 1 out of 10?

  6. Warren Terra:

    The odd thing is that the posts that had comment threads spiraling into the high hundreds over the course of days don’t make the list. I guess all those comments really were from a few people.

  7. Murc:

    I’m assuming that the top ten is in reference to page views, not comments.

    Although even that seems off. The number one post, for example, doesn’t have a lot of trackbacks on it. This place gets linked a lot by some of the 800lb gorillas of the blogging world; Sullivan, Kos, etc. And the Loomis freakout a few weeks ago seemed to bring in a lot of fresh faces. But the most-viewed post was the flag one? Really?

  8. J. Otto Pohl:

    Wow! That is quite a bit for just one year. My blog in the course of over eight years total has the following much smaller stats.

    Posts – 1,896
    Comments – 2,136
    Page views – 94,081

  9. Robert Farley:

    The flag post never got a huge bump, but got consistent traffic over the course of a couple months from a variety of sources. It was number one by a country mile.

  10. Linnaeus:

    Narrowly preventing Lemieux from being the SEC of LGM.

  11. Barry Freed:

    I’m getting 123 now for that as well as 123 for “Walrus.” Something must be wrong with the Google algorithm.

    Happy New Year to the whole LGM community!

    Needs more Ghana and leftist bashing.

  13. J. Otto Pohl:

    There is no Ghana bashing on my blog.

  14. wengler:

    Needs more Ghana, and leftist-bashing.

  15. J. Otto Pohl:

    I love the Oxford comma.
