Thanks for the note! I think the issue is that, just like airplanes or anything else, not everybody agrees on what’s best. And that’s probably a good thing, in general. Please keep your comments/suggestions coming. Feel free to email me with any specific suggestions on how to improve the site (but be warned; I’m still working through the suggestions I’ve received so far and it may take several weeks or more to do that!)
To answer the original question, the number of posts on the the COPA Forums for the week of Sat 10/6 to Sat 10/13 was 278.
The total number of posts on sr20.org AND COPA Forums the week of Sat 9/1 to Sat 9/8 was 263. I can’t easily count only those which were posted on SR20.org, but the majority were. [I picked 9/1 to 9/8 because there was a huge amount of traffic for the couple weeks after 9/11, and it didn’t seem fair to count all those!]
So, using this very non-statistically-significant measure, the number of posts is roughly the same.
