WELCOME TO THE 2006 ANNUAL TRAFFIC REPORT
Hi, everyone. This is Doug with the Annual Traffic Report for 2006 . Below the summary data for this year. I have included the corresponding data for last year, if it is available.

To start out with, we have a special Contributor. Sandy contributed every day during the year! This hasn't happened since JimJr did it back in 1998. She vows to do it again in 2007. Congratulations, Sandy!!!!!

Other news during the year: 3 new statistics were added to the Monthly Traffic Report and a FAQ page was added to the website.

2) The one-time subscriber fee is now $14.95 for one email address or $19.95 for two email addresses.

3) After payment through PayPal, you will be directed back to the Humor List website. Because PayPal and SimpleLists are not directly connected, there is a second step that must be completed. Please continue by adding your subscription information to the SimpleLists form.

4) One of the factors in deciding to allow SimpleLists to become our new mailing list service was their strict anti-spamming policy. After completing the SimpleLists form, you will be sent a "Request to join mailing list thehumorlist@simplelists.com" email with a confirmation link. Be sure to confirm your email address. If a subscriber has not "confirmed" their email address - SimpleLists will not allow us to include their email address for daily mailings.

DOUG'S TRADITIONAL HUMOR CONTRIBUTION
And finally, the one feature which has been featured in all Traffic Reports, the contribution of Humor. Since, I am not a real regular contributor, I will not be providing new Humor. Instead, I will provide a joke from the archives. It will be at least 14 months old, so most of you won't remember it. This is my contribution of Humor from the Archives:

This joke is joke #2 in the Digest For 12/8/1998
http://archive.thehumorlist.us/Site1/Digests/H0604090.php#Joke12
From: Joe Clark
Subject: Science Humor (offensive to Toyota)

From The New Scientist. Dec 5, 1998, page 96. Quoted without permission.
The British Automobile Association tells us via the winter edition of its members' magazine that: "Toyota has employed a scientist to develop a tree which absorbs carbon dioxide in a bid to improve global air quality."

Feedback predicts success.

For the non-science types, all plants (and trees) absorb carbon dioxide.
