From early April to early July 2015, File 770 ran daily round-ups of events and comments on the Sad/Rabid Puppy kerfuffle. A list of titles is here http://file770.com/the-compleat-litter-of-puppy-roundup-titles/
Now I wanted to say something like “the number of comments grew substantially” but that’s just an impression. So, I did a bit of web-scraping and grabbed the number of comments for each round-up post and graphed them by date.
The big spike at the end was the penultimate round-up http://file770.com/to-your-scattered-kennels-go-76/
June 14 was at the height of the Tor-boycott campaign and the thread feature Tom Kratman, John C Wright verbally duelling with assorted people.
