Uh, they did care; response was pretty good. Post here (June 7, 2011).
But, one “Larry Tanner” who self-describes as follows,
“Larry Tanner” is my nom de blog. I am married, a father of three beautiful children, and enjoying life in New England. I work with robotic technologies, teach classes in English literature, and ghostwrite non-fiction books for a rabbi – and I self-identify as an atheist. I’m currently working on a Ph.D. on matters of literature, textuality, and probabilistic reasoning.
was complaining (June 8, 2011):
However, I am surprised that that Carroll’s post has not generated more discussion at UD than it has: only about 23 responses in 24 hours.
Hi, Larry, I’m Denyse O’Leary, and that’s a nom de reality, okay? It’s an easily demonstrated fact that there is no particular relationship between readership and comments. We track both.
Stats? Yeah. Got stats. Been ‘bout three weeks: (Visited 2,852 times, 126 visits today) 62 responses as of 11:00 pm EST June 24, 2011. At #6, the Carroll guest post seems likely to overtake current #5 any time. (That’s at 2909 just now, but not growing.)
If you’re so big on science, “Larry Tanner,” have you considered admitting realistic statistics like viewership into your playpen? Statistics that actually tell us something about viewer interest?
Naw. Too much monitoring. Better you should sleep on the problem and then outgas without real information.
File under: Yuh. Another “science” guy holds forth.
