In August, Politics Plus was slow in all categories. The summer doldrums hit us last month. I’m not surprised. Here is our latest summary:
In the monthly totals, a Site is any website from which someone accessed our server, a Hit is every access attempt to our server, and a File is every access attempt to our server that returned data. The difference between Hits and Files is from access attempts that were sent in error or damaged in transit and failed attempts by hackers, spammers, phishers, and Republicans to access the back end and take control of the site. Any questions?
Here is our latest Clustrmap:
ClusterMaps misses a lot of, because many visits can’t be easily traced to a location. It shows only the visits from March 2 to July 28, when it was last updated. Therefore the map is unchanged from last month.
Here are our top five articles:
Koch Brothers Finance Racism 8/18/2011 2,033
Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs 1/17/1010 1,818
A Republican Freedom 9/24/2013 1,233
A Republican Staffer Tells the Truth! 9/5/2011 449
Police Racism in Ferguson 8/14/2014 386
Several years are represented here, but I would like to see more traffic from last month.

Normally I include 15 here, but these are the only ones with two or more referrals. Putting their links here increases the ratings of their sites, so this “linkey love” is our thank you for their support.
Here are our top commentators. As the resident Big Mouth, I don’t count. Those who leave their URLs in their comment headers, also get “linkey-love” here.

Marva, you ought to put your book site in your comments. Those of you with a news page on Care2 could use a link to your submitted news there in the URL field of your comments here.
We have 169,201 links on other websites.
Our Technorati rating no longer exists, because Technorati no longer exists as a blog rating entity. They have left a vacuum in blog authority rating. If you learn of someone filling that need before I do, please let me know.
As of Midnight, September 1, we have 5,071 articles and 55,904 comments.

I tried to start new series to highlight and publicize your political activities. I failed miserably.
The Holy Ellipsoid Orb has returned, and with it, our own fantasy football league.
The 2014 elections are only two months away. Republicans are at home to their districts to lie to their constituents about all the wonderful things they have been doing. If one is holding a town hall near your home, please consider attending and calling them out on their lies.
Please get out the vote!
Thank you for everything that you do.
