A reader very kindly let Dr No know that the email subscription form (“Subscribe to Dr No” form on the right) was broken. There have also been some odd random ‘unsubscribe’ events for subscribers where Dr No knows the subscriber didn’t unsubscribe (because the subscriber was a test email address used by Dr No!). Dr No has therefore migrated all subscribers across to a new system which appears to be working (though you never can tell 100% with these things).
Twitter continues to suppress Dr No’s tweets. Yesterday’s tweet announcing a post about the perils of mathematical modelling had garnered a desultory 62 impressions by this morning, compared to several hundred impressions for typical similar tweets a couple of months ago. Dr No had already been minded to take a two week or so summer break from posting and tweeting — what could possibly happen over the silly season — and the recent twitter suppression has strengthened his resolve, so two weeks or so of no tweets or posts to allow things to settle, and then a discrete restart, with a watchful eye on twitter behaviour.
