This morning Res Ipsa passed the 59,000,000 mark in views on the blog. We have used these moments to give thanks for our many regular readers around the world and give you an idea of the current profile of readers on the blog and our readership around the world. As always, I want to offer special thanks for Darren Smith, who has continued to help manage the blog and help out folks who encounter posting problems. I also want to thank Kristin Oren who continues her amazing work proofing posts on a daily basis to remove my embarrassing typos. Finally, I would like to thank our regular readers who alert me to typos or any violations of the civility or copyright policies on the blog.
We have continued to post the highest traffic numbers for each month this year.
So here is our current profile:
As of this morning, we have over 20,600 posts and roughly 1,200,000 comments. We are at roughly 300,000 Twitter followers. We have 6,383 people who signed up for alerts by emails.
In the last month, our ten biggest international sources for readers came from:

Thank you for the great site Professor Turley!
Keep up the great work.
I am grateful (and so should all Americans) that Professor Turley provides us with a daily sober analysis of legal and political events. He is a true defender of our Constitution and institutions. I wish he could be cloned so he could teach at all of our law schools.
A worthy accomplishment — keep on keepin’ on!

Congratulations JT (and Darren).
Your output is impressive!
Thank you, Professor Turley, for this great place to have conversations! Thank you, too, Darren, for rescuing comments, etc.
Please address and help reduce the poisonous exchanges your blog attracts. These cause you to hemorrhage valuable contributors, and cheapens your forum greatly. As much I appreciate your reasoned critiques of our public square vis a vis the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, especially as one who fled Communism, the abuses by anonymous trolls would benefit from your intervention, e.g. commenters at a minimum should be required to create a blog account to permit commenting much like many other public internet forums. Otherwise thanks for your expert commentary.
How to Fix the Internet: Anonymity has poisoned online life.
– Walter Isaacson
December 15, 2016
We have to fix the internet. After 40 years, it has begun to corrode, both itself and us. It is still a marvelous and miraculous invention, but now there are bugs in the foundation, bats in the belfry, and trolls in the basement.
“A telltale sign that a government is getting too big and too intrusive into our lives is always that it attacks free speech. Authoritarian regimes always start with attacking freedom of expression. And it is always done in the name of protecting you.” ~Andrew Scheer
Thanks to Prof. Turley for being a champion of free speech, more speech and a healthy debate of ideas. It could not be more important.
Thank you JT.
This blog is a great replacement for them:
It’s nice to read a blog that contains insightful civil discourse.
Keep up the good work!
