Okay comments will appear automatically, as per normal (except for first time posters).
All I was interested in, is how much traffic comes from people reading the main posts, and how much from people checking back in to read the comments. So I’m going to look at what the traffic was for this Wednesday compared to the other days this week.
Due to server load the stats package only updates every Sunday, so I won’t have data until next week.
Despite no comments appearing, there were 185 comments made yesterday, which have now appeared. That is far more than I thought there would be considering all of them were just commenting on the main post, not debating other comments.
There are no plans to have a permament delay in comments appearing. While it does get raucous at times, I think it is good to have the debate.
