  1. Very useful. Thanks.

  2. Waste of space.

  3. Cool feature. Probably will be very useful in the future.

  4. Seeing I had missed a thread w/429 comments, well, maybe there’s something interesting there. Although, it’s probably just more brain-dead arguments.

  5. where online is the RCA brain death paper? Anyone have a link?

  6. how about posting the google analytics of how many people clicked on each story…

  7. waste of space

  9. I added the pageviews from Google analytics but it takes too much time to do again.

  10. This comment is a waste of space.

  11. To the extent that the summary illustrates what are the au courant blog interests, this page is useful. Otherwise, the subjects of each post are accessible via the archives. Therefore, this summary serves some constructive purpose.
