I can see a serious drop in the #'s after the election.
perhaps it's the growth and participation of our political community due the elections that contributes to this amazing jump.
The 1,500+ members online in 24 hours is a trend, not a spurt... www.abovetopsecret.com... Most important, this graph shows a trend: Certainly much of our immediate traffic is related to the political campaign... but the larger trend is easy to spot.

This peaks and valleys are more related to big news days. For example, the bigger of the peaks correspond to our coverage of the Nick Berg beheading video during the period the story was hot (as the first beheading). Every "valley" represents our slower weekend period.
Originally posted by CazMedia I also notice a sort of cyclic up/down motion with a seemingly regular peak and valley interval....whie the peaks and valleys over all are getting higher on the graph...is there any idea about why these spikes occur and at the seemingly regular frequency?
