WELCOME TO THE 2015 ANNUAL TRAFFIC REPORT
Hi, everyone. This is Doug with the Annual Traffic Report for 2010 . Below the summary data for this year. I have included the corresponding data for last year, if it is available.

I realized that I never sent out this report for 2010, so I am sending it out VERY VERY late. You'll have to forgive me.

Some observations: The number is subscribers is slowly declining. The number of Articles is down from the previous year. Apparently we did not have enough Contributors to fill out the Top 25.

Let's see if we can do better in 2011.
(This report updated with current information: December 2017)

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 11/28/2000
http://archive.thehumorlist.us/Site1/Digests/H0011280.php#Joke2
From: Felix Chirciu
Subject: Rules of Golf <political>

A proposed revision to the rules of golf is being sought in South Florida which will replace the traditional call of "FORE".

Once a player has hit an errant shot he will be allowed to call "GORE" while the ball is still in flight. He can then replace the ball in the same spot and hit it again.

The player can do this until he is satisfied the ball is going where he intended to hit it in the first place. This will cause the time of play to be extended until such time the player can claim the hole.

This revision is causing some consternation to the PGA but proponents say it is only fair.

A recent test of this new rule was recently played out in an exclusive club in Palm Beach County Florida and the first hole only took 19 days to complete.

Q: What is the difference between a puppy and Al Gore?
A: After five weeks, a puppy opens the eyes and stops whining.
