    And since our society is obsessed with numbers that end in a lot of zeros as milestones, here's a special shoutout to users:

    We've added a whopping 4,875 more users in the last three days.  This is a continuation going back to May where we've been absolutely flooded with new users.  I'm pretty sure almost all of these new users are spammers or bots.  While the rate had been getting faster, it seems they suddenly started slowing down right when Hurricane Sandy hit.  It slowed down to under 1,000 new users in a 24-hour period, and we were back down to somewhat over 100 new users every 24 hours or so, until about January 30th, when it exploded again.  What are they planning?


    And for your Diary Rescue music pleasure, here's the Pretenders' "Don't Get Me Wrong".
