...43 other DiSers posted once, but that's fine.
Unfortunately some of the more complicated features of the program seem borked, and so i can't bring you more in-depth stats (i'll have to have a word with warny on Monday). We had worked on quite a complicated formula to work out averages based on time of posting, subject, hardship, etc, etc, but this hasn't been possible.
Congrats to everyone who didn't pretend to be busy on Christmas Day and who appreciates that it's a cynical money maker and ultimately just really fucking boring. Next year we'll be looking for a 15% rise in posts all round.
