You must have heard of the Slashdot effect. It is real. It is of a magnitude beyond your imagination. Yesterday I felt a teeny weeny jolt in bandwidth simply because someone linked to my "New IE vulnerability - fake URLs" entry in this Slashdot article entitled "Microsoft Advises to Type in URLs Rather than Click" in a comment. A comment that is found about 80% down a page that scrolls at least fifty times when you press the page down button.
Lucky for me I'm just below my bandwidth allocation for this month.
