This may be a dumb question (and someone says "the only dumb question is the one never asked"), how is any one post viewed more than any other, because the way the web site is set up we roll through posts one at a time; or I gues if I click on a certain post, but why would I do that other than if I am commenting, reading or responding to a comments, which would imply that it would be "the most commented on posts"? (Does any of this make any sense?)

Gary, you're right that clicking to read or write a comment creates a page view for that post. Also, people come directly to posts through various sources -- quite often Facebook, but also Twitter, Google, Yahoo, AOL, other web sites.

Because most of our stories run complete on the home page, that does suppress our over all page view count, but I think the design also contributes a lot to people coming back repeatedly.
