Are you curious about what happened to our stats the day after I posted this blog about our stats being viewed by the army and department of defense? They suddenly went to ZERO for two days.
Admittedly, we just had a submission deadline on January 15th and things typically cool off immediately after a deadline, but I know for a fact that we couldn’t have zero visitors because I was actually visiting the site during that time so I could make a list of changes for our designer. Obviously, I think the two incidents are related and I’m sure this will make some people worry that I ran out of medication or something.
But if I did clue in somebody that I could see them watching and they fixed it, what exactly does that mean? Should I be less concerned? Once these folks realize that I haven’t done anything wrong, will they notify me that I am no longer under investigation? Will I get reimbursed by the government for the performance hits that my phone and internet services have taken? The next time our web stats report zero, should I be suspicious?
I love my country. I fear my government.
