Four million satisfied customers

Since the web site re-jig, and since we started counting in earnest, wk.com has received more than four million visits – 4,050,000, to be precise.

A significant perecentage of those visits belong to people who (a) hate Yours Screwly but (b) can’t keep away, because I am richer, smarter and better-looking than they are.

Four million! Wow! Thanks to you, wk.com regulars!

    I come for the zombie related posts. I stay for the winged monkeys in the comments section.

  2. gretschfan says:

    I still say this diarist web site where readers can comment looks an awful lot like a blog. But hey congrats, my friend!

    • Warren says:

      It’s not, dammit! I hate that “blog” word. It sounds like a bodily function.

      • Andrew says:

        As in “you are full of blog”? Ha!

        Thanks for the website.

      • Marc-Andre Chiasson says:

        Instead of a blog, perhaps you could call yours “The Flog”. Your masthead could be “To torture Reformatories” with a whip of broken glass and a metal ball with two metal hooks”. Has a nice homespun ring, don’t you think? Congrats on the numbers Warren.

      • Reality.Bites says:

        LOL, so what does shit from hell sound like?

        (Yes, I know it’s now SFH)

  3. Bill M. says:

    Your welcome.

    At the next NDP leader convention I guess prerequisites will be affability and the ability to excel at smoke and mirrors.

    Sounds like a real Jack-off!

    Hey did anyone ever win a copy of your book based on seat projections?

    If not, I claim it. Ya know, based on my sense of entitlement and all.

    I also think I was the 4 millionth visitor.

    • Warren says:

      No one really nailed the number – what should I do? Give to closest overall?

      • Bill M. says:

        That sounds fair.

        Even if I lose dammit!

      • Attack! says:

        Nah. It’s like a lottery: when no one had the winning numbers, you just let it ride… it stays in the kitty. But next time (say, the ON election) specify, out by no more than, say, 15, overall.

        But for a consolation prize, maybe give those two closest winners an electronic, MS Word copy of your book (making them swear not to share it, of course).

      • smelter rat says:

        Ya gotta be here to win 🙂

      • MattMcD says:

        Hide it in a metal attache case somewhere in Ottawa.

        Whoever finds it first wins. Or failing that the RCMP will freak out about someone leaving a metal attache case lying around somewhere in Ottawa.

  4. Harith says:

    Now switch your comments section to Disqus. 😛

  5. Paul says:

    4M of us proves you are interesting and relevant. I like the equal opportunity shots you take at people from all spectrums – they are fair and on target with the Canada we know and love. The next 4 years will be even more interesting…

    The only time I didn’t come to your site regularly was when you were in the war room for Iggy. In my opinion, you were spouting shit you didn’t believe and it showed.

      • The Doctor says:

        On the other hand, I think it was when WK was in the Dion camp that he came up with the moniker “Iggy Flop.”

        That was pure gold.

    • Cath says:

      well said Paul. Ditto from me WK.
      Although I must also say that there’s an element of creativity in your posts that you don’t get from other “not-a-blogs”.
      Even though I still miss Bart The Political Fish there’s always room for another “not-a-blog” mascot.
      Roxy’s likely doing important dog-stuff.

  7. Bell says:


    I can’t remember how I stumbled onto your site but I know why I always return. You put me on to Against Me! and reminded me why I was obsessed with punk music when I was a kid. That being said I know you will find this epic and somewhat appropriate for the times.

    If the link didn’t work just go to YouTube and search for the recent live version of clarity.

  8. DougCS says:

    Huge fan of your work and I appreciate the regular updates/post. As a proud/active Liberal in Hamilton, I need a different Liberal perspective outside my network. Although I might not agree, I appreciate the commentary from a smart political titan.

    Kuddos, sir.

  9. Jon Powers says:

    Congratulations Warren. And I’d just like to add that you are one of the few voices on the Web warning about the Zombie Threat. As I like to say, you’re either with us, or you’re with the Zombies.

  10. Michael Behiels says:

    Congrats Warren for all your imaginative and perceptive comments on your not-a-blog. And, most importantly congratulations on your openness to those with other points of view as long as these expressions are accurate and civil and not anonymous.

    Good luck with your role in constructing a new 21st Century national Liberal Party. McGuinty seems to have found the sweet spot for 21st century Ontario Liberals.

    After all, Ontario is the largest province and just may garner, if Harper respects democracy and the need for democratic reform, twenty more seats very soon to fight over.

    Best of luck in the provincial election campaign and don’t let up on Hudac and his extreme brand of Republican-style conservatism. Ontarians more than other Canadians understand who is largely responsible for the US Great Recession and its decline in global geo-politics and economics. The Republican/Tea Party coalition.

    • The Doctor says:

      I cannot imagine why Harper would not want to add more seats in Ontario, BC and Alberta, given his considerable political support in all three of those provinces. It seems to me that would be eminently in his self-interest, never mind his respect (or lack thereof) for democracy.

  11. WildGuesser says:

    ‘Customers’? Does that mean you are selling us something?

  12. billg says:

    4 million?….I bet a few of them were Stephen Harper….just checkin’ in for fun.

  13. Jen van Kessel says:

    Well done Warren. Here’s a post with my real name In honor of your achievement since i know how much you love it when people hide behind stupid names like “pomo”. Plus Ive been mistaken for a dude here so often I figured it might be time to out myself.

    Thanks for the good times! Oh and, hey… Saw a defaced NDP sign I thought was pretty rude but had to share: the letter “e” was inserted ahead of Jack and the letter “u” was inserted in front of Layton. Purile and terrible. Thought I should share.

  14. Ted (not the other one) says:

    Congratulations. Now the question is what is your true audience size? Take your fans at 5-10 hits per day and add that to your hater/stalkers at 50/100 hits per day and you just may have cracked the 100 unique visitor mark. Double congratulations!
