Welcome, Moldovans!

According to my website software, .99% of visitors in December are from Moldova. This is up from 0% in November, and at current traffic levels, means 13-15 people a day.

This is a wonderful thing, of course. I'm just... confused. Currently Moldovans are the third most frequent nationality visiting here, behind only Americans and Canadians.

So if you've one of these Moldovans, could you write me at tinyrevolution*at*yahoo[dot]com? I'm curious how you first found this site. (Perhaps via Zeynep?) Also, whether all the visits are from you personally using different IP addresses, or if there's an entire squad of visitors stopping by.

If you have an opinion about recent events in your large neighbor Ukraine, that would be another plus.

It's most likely people using proxies. Eastern Europe has plenty of anonymous ones.

Oh, sure, bring up reality. I much prefer the world inside my head, where enormous platoons of Modolvans hang on my every world, start tinyrevolution fan clubs, build shrines, etc.


I considered that, but it was impossible for me to find out for the following important reasons: (1) I am too lazy.

Actually, it probably is Moldovans looking for information on how to start a revolution.

When I use proxies, it's nearly always to troll. The absence of trolling would seem to indicate a genuine scholarly interest. As Moldova is a small country, a tiny revolution would be appropriate.
