Fewer than 300 to go!

The countdown is on to 50,000 subscribers, and now I think it will happen—perhaps even within a month. Then I will be a happy complacent man. Here’s the count from this morning:

    Hire a staff like Trump did which can then create millions of fake subscribers like his Twitter account.

    Jerry, your postings are often valuable to me. But my Inbox fills up too quickly as it is without unnecessary notes like this. Please respect the subscribers you already have!

      Out of respect for you and your gratuitous note, I’d ask you to unsubscribe, as I really don’t want subscribers who are disrespectful enough to tell me what postings are “unnecessary.”

      I have an automatic rule in my mail client that moves the notifications from WEIT to a different folder.

      An alternative would be to use the RSS feed instead.

        You can set it up to be once a week

      Sorry for the double post. I honestly do not know how it happened. If it’s possible to delete one of them, please do so.

      Good sir, don’t you have a Delete key?

      WordPress allows you to manage your subscription so as to turn off email notifications. If you still have the confirmation email they sent you, there’s a link there that will take you to your ‘subscription dashboard’.

      This is the link it gave me, which looks like it will work for anyone logged in to WP.

    Wow…sometimes that wish for more kind of backfires, as it always does. There is the rest of the internet and then there is here. It is very good here.

      Agreed. In reality this is the only site i need. The more notifications from PCC(E), the better. So… please sir can i have some more?

    But the question Jerry, is whether you have sufficient time before the Orange Buffoon unleashes Ragnarok.

    Congratulations on your popularity. There are plenty of good reasons for it. Sometimes I agree and sometimes I disagree with you, but your arguments are always thoughtful, logical and to the point and your writing almost always gives me reason to challenge my opinions. And you mostly keep your ego out of it. That’s something only very good writers can do.

    I can’t imagine telling you to respect the space in my crowded inbox. Kind of a bizarre thing to write. Thank you for sharing so much with us. 100K is not so far away!
