Blog traffic has been unusual for the past few weeks. I have been getting large spikes, 2 to 3 times my normal daily traffic, on days when nothing is happening, even on days when I have no new posts. This used to happen only when there were exceptional events: DSK's arrest or "Casse-toi pauvr' con." (That these were the most exceptional events of the past five years in the judgment of the Internet already says something about either the state of French politics or the state of the Internet. But I have no idea what's going on now, and the blog logs, oddly enough, show nothing that would give me a clue.
Anybody have any ideas? Arun, BernardG, other bloggers: Have you seen anything similar?
