Most popular posts October-December 2013

by Walter Olson on December 30, 2013

Our most heavily trafficked post in October 2013 was “USPS To Destroy ‘Just Move’ Stamps Over Safety Concerns’” The most commented-on posts were “Update: $2.2 M verdict reinstated for client whose chair collapsed at law firm,” “A slippery slope to polygamy?” and the USPS post above.

November’s most clicked-on post was “San Rafael, Calif. passes own-home smoking ban.” The most commented-on posts were that post, “NYC: ‘Meet the seemingly unfirable female firefighter’,” and “FDA orders 23andMe to shut down home genome test.”

The most visited post in December was “Drunk driver will recover $6.6 million from two Pennsylvania bars.” (In fact, by being linked on Reddit, it brought us the highest number of visitors of any day in the site’s history, since moving onto WordPress at least.) The most commented-on posts, subject to change should there be some last-minute wave of comments, were “Megan McArdle: ‘Lead paint verdict sets dangerous precedent’,” “Liberty cake wrecks, cont’d,” and the drunk driver post above.
