COUNTER CONSPIRACY ALLEGED
Commenter George Clinton alleges skullduggery:
Beck! No response as to why you blocked your stats from being public. What happened? Was it because Blair was caught sockpuppeting here? He didn't make any bogus legal threats so you know it's correct!In order to make my numbers easy to check for anyone wanting to have a look, my counter was for years publicly available. I restricted access when it became obvious that obsessives could use it to monitor commenter IPs, perhaps violating their privacy -- remember how Ant Rogenous incorrectly stated with certainty that he had caught Tim Blair sock-puppeting. Regardless, it's got to be obvious I have a small readership.
Or maybe it was because the statcounter showed at all anonymous comments were coming from the same 3 IP's? Big readership you got here.
