    users. We had a problem with computer generated spam users for a while that ran the numbers up to absurd levels.

    Even counting the lurkers I don't think there are more than a few tens of thousands who read regularly at the moment. Not that that wouldn't be a demonstration to take note of, but health, financial and cross country transportation issues are all factors in how many we can field at any given time.

      There's no consistency among the protests.  I didn't live during the Vietnam War era but in watching a lot of documentaries and even the great "Hearts and Minds" film, the protests during the Vietnam War were organized, TOO organized as a matter of fact.  A number of people had walkie-talkies with them everywhere and that in itself was good.  Camp grounds were set around and people didn't even care about getting arrested.

      However, organizers of the Vietnam War recognized that putting protests all around the country wasn't enough.  They had to focus on their prime target:  Washington DC.

      Hell, even the Iraq War protests have been lackluster at best, at least until Cindy Sheehan came into the picture.  She was smart because she protested on President Bush's own turf in Crawford, Texas.  

      We need to learn from Cindy Sheehan on strategy.
