Today is the first anniversary of the inaugural post on this blog. In the succeeding 12 months, we’ve had 295 posts and 418 comments (not counting the more than 1,000 spam comments, few of which have penetrated our formidable spam defenses), and these are our 20 most read blog posts during that year:
