Average number of posts per day: ~2.2 posts per day (down from ~2.6 posts per day)

This stat is a bit skewed because there are days when this blog seems like it's going through a drought.

That apart, the quality of posts & commentators is on a down slide. Add to that a few trolls that use this blog to vent their dilletante'ish political views when they could easily take it out on a punching bag.
