Nobody comments anymore wah

Here's a follow up on Readership is down, posts continue to be erratic

More noticeable than diogenes club's declining readership is its declining comments. Here's a chart:

PS: I made this chart a few months ago, forgot about it, and then didn't feel like updating the data when I remembered it

What can we take from this chart? Not that much, but I think facebook has taken away some of the club's thunder. Way back in 2004, there wasn't an easy way to keep up with people and leave comments on it and stuff, so people settled for just keeping up with me and commenting here. Now that facebook is around, you can keep with everybody and leave as many comments as you want, rendering diogenes club somewhat obsolete.

But don't think that'll stop me. I'll be posting here on the incredibly irregular basis I've been keeping up for almost six years, and I don't care if anybody comments or not.

As long as we can expect you to keep providing "follow ups" to posts two years after the original, you can expect us to be here, irregularly commenting.

Well I'm sure not going to comment if you don't care.
