I would not put it in either of those two categories.

To me, the form of the "curve" would suggest a time-dpenedent quantitiy: Somthing that has low numbers for a long time, with ups and down, sometimes shrinking to zero, and then exploding onto the scene at the end. But the numbers on the x-axis don't suggest time as the independent variable.

The numbers on the x-axis are time. "1" is the first unit of time, "2" is the second, "125" is the 125th.

For what it's worth, I created the graph myself from the source data. It may not be quite as slick as it would be if it were pulled from Der Spiegel.

No, nothing like that.

The first observation is March 2007.

Yes, they are. And for what it is worth, the months begin and end in the time zone where I am located most of the time (UTC+8). If I did the graph according to your time zone, it would probably change, but not very much.

If you look carefully, you will notice that some of the observations are zero - so what do you think?

Yeah, okay. That can't be it.

Anything to do with Trump though?

Well done!

On a side note, I noticed the flag portion of the portal page (visits by nation) and was wondering how much it was influenced by that particular thread (and the "up your post count" thread).
Lance, do you know what the flag counter actually counts? Would hits by bots even count?

Well, since Heid didn't post a new graph, I can't resist the opportunity.
