Conceptual metric for DU to track?
I was wondering if any of the statisticians/analytics types could offer up a OP stat that shows a numerical value that evaluates 3 things

Recs/Replies/Views. I'd love to read the threads that have lowest # of recs vs volumes of replies and views. Some value that ranks by 3 decimal points. 0.000 to 1.000.

Everything that comes out of the DUmp is stupid so I don't see your point?

I think a great idea would be to show the number of stupid posts, racist posts and anti
Semitic posts with the most hateful posters  :-)

I recall a program that scoured DUmmieland and found the actual number of unique individual posters was only around 1500 or so.

They're using the "three decimal points" because with some of the more prolific DUm'Rat DUmp Monkeys, you have to resolve that finely to get discernable IQ from them at all...

I'm curious about how often someone on DU suggests a "new" rhetorical strategy that in fact has been frequently used by dems for years.

It would, otoh, be useful to track what stupid people are most attracted to, topic wise.
"Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice." - John Adams

I’m surprised to see that there’s any unique individuals over there, they all seem to be cut from the same cloth  :thatsright:
