The statistics feature on blogger for this blog has been showing very weird traffic patterns for the last week or so. Usually, most traffic comes from Google and a few sites that link to this one. But, in the last week, almost all of the traffic (more than 7,000 page views, a large share of which to pages I haven't visited for years) has allegedly been linked to a variety of pages at this site, with particularly heavy views of a number of political posts from the period from 2005 to 2012.
The feature at this blog and its sister blog that notes the latest post at the other blog has also been acting up and not functioning at time.
I have no idea what is going on and it doesn't seem to have implicated functionality, but I put it out there for those who may be more knowledgable about these things.
