According to WordPress I’ve had over 11,000 hits today, making it my best day ever since this blog started! I’m really surprised since the best day I had previously was in February 2007 when I put up the Barack Obama Church Post of DOOM (10,000 hits that day, but closer to 11,000 for the 24 hours after the post went up). Even “Thank You, White People” didn’t get me 11,000 in a day (we got close, I believe. Somewhere around 7 or 8K). I guess the topic resonates.
Also interesting, with all these hits have come very few trolls. There are about 15 or so comments from the usual suspects plus some SASS folks, but nothing like the level of crazy we got after “Thank You, White People”. And these trolls aren’t even interesting. Just blah blah fatty blah blah you’re black blah blah wank wank. Do they really think they can hurt my feelings after I came out on the other side of a Stromfront attack? *snerk* Amateurs.
However, it has parked a post idea, which will come tomorrow, I think: How To Deal With Online Harassment.
