Thanks for pointing this out, Andy. Happy to see people finding and
sharing material from the Quote Investigator (QI) website.

In the past I carefully examined the analytics of the QI website to
determine the identity of the websites who were sending me traffic. It
was fun to know when, for example, the washingtonpost.com, reddit.com,
and news.ycombinator.com were linking to the website. Nowadays many
people erase cookies, block JavaScript, and/or block advertisements.
People desire privacy and do not like ads. So the analytics data is
flawed and incomplete.

Nevertheless, even the imperfect data shows thousands of daily
visitors who I am glad to help.
