Traffic patterns

It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted. An eternity. While I don't have any hot El Naschie news, I thought I'd share with you some patterns I see in traffic to this blog lately.

As far as today, specifically, is concerned -- welcome to Luboš Motl's Reference Frame readers, who are here today in droves on account of a comment I left there about John Baez.

But there is a pattern that has emerged over the last couple of weeks that amazes me. I am not sure what to think about it.

Check this out.

Most popular page on this blog? The front page. No surprise there.

Second most popular page? The n-Category cafe archive. Again, not surprising.

But the third most popular page is a shocker. (Not safe for work. Don't click if you'll be upset to see El Naschie crudely Photoshopped [link broken; content removed] into gay porn.) The Arab world is visiting that page in droves.

My feelings about this are mixed.

  1. Jason, El Naschie party's infestation on "Motl's Reference Frame" has begun: the comment trilogy of someone named "Brad" is a clear sign. :D


  2. It's interesting to check Brad's profile: One can find out that he already posted as "Simon" - "Elementary, my dear Watson", we are dealing with another El Naschie sockpuppet. :)


  3. That Brad is handing himself over by calling Max Planc institution as Max Blanc.
    He is Brad as much as I am.
    In arabic there is no sound P - any P in non-arabic is said as either F or B....
    So he is just a stupid arab.

  4. Anonymous, Arabs can be stupid or smart like anyone else. But your P/F/B observation is very interesting. I didn't know that.
