*Over the course of the year, various spam bots from sites like Semalt, Adfly,, and others began visiting the site at a high rate. As they did so, I added them to a referral exclusion list, but their initial visits are not disaggregated from the overall totals. These sites are also excluded from the top referrers list. Additionally, all visits from my own computer are excluded.
