The PooterGeek site is being spanked like a cabinet minister at an upmarket brothel these days. Since about a month ago the number of hits it’s been taking each hour has jumped sharply. I honestly don’t have an explanation for it, especially as my work these days inevitably comes in bursts and requires me to travel about, forcing me to stop posting for a few days at a time without warning.

One thing that has brought more visits from Google—and all lanes of the information superhighway lead from Google—is the ongoing John Prescott soap opera. The number of people drawn here by combinations of the words “John”, “Prescott”, and “blog” is striking. And PooterGeek is only the third hit for most permutations. I think the gossip junkies would be better off visiting this treasonous papist for their daily spoonful of sleaze.
