I traced it to an issue with Technorati - I've pulled their code for now, since they seem to think The W and The 7 are the same board anyway (which they are, but they aren't) and their stats for us are all mugged up anyway. We should be back to peppy posting when you start a new thread, so please don't hit that button five times thinking it'll make it go faster. ;-)
The Banished folder used to be a guilty pleasure of mine. It was the occasional fuck-up thread or a thread that ended in a ZIM clever remark. Now it is just full of crap that used to be deleted and forgotten with no fan fare.
