12,000,000

This afternoon, the blog passed 12,000,000 all-time hits. While still smaller than some of other sites in the top ten legal blogs, we just passed 11,000,000 not long ago and we have continued to grow. I am very proud of our community and our attempt to offer a place for civil and responsible conversation. I encourage our regulars and visitors to continue to avoid the personal attacks and name calling common elsewhere on the Internet.

The continued growth of the site shows that our approach to blogging resonates with a good number of people. I continue to be concerned in reading comments that take personal shots and use insulting language. I hope that the recent debate over civility in legal blogging will reaffirm the need of our regulars to avoid insults and personal jabs. If you do not like a person’s take on a story, there is no need to characterize the writer or the writer’s motivations. Let’s deal with the ideas and leave the ad hominem attacks to other sites.

Thanks again for making the site such a great success.

Here are the list of countries represented by viewers and commentators on the blog with the first being obviously the most prevalent:

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
    seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why
    waste your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  2. Gene,

    I was told that he slowed down around the first of the year (apparently due to the failure of his business) and disappeared entirely around when Breitbart died (no evidence of causation, just correlation).

  3. That you see the distinction without having a difference is your opinion and you’re entitled to it, but there is nothing intellectually dishonest about a distinction simply because you don’t agree with it.

  4. It’s a distinction without a difference…. Intellectual dishonesty…. At best….. Thread jacking is still taking it off of its main purpose….. Try that approach on the the other sites and see where your post ends up…… That’s what’s great about this parlor…… You are pretty much free to post what you will……

  5. It’s an important distinction, raff.

    One has an element of mens rea/intent, the other is a natural process.
