I took the liberty of posting the above to the reddit topic.
As always, postings on reddit will get less than half of the
potential traction unless there's a comment explaining why the
user should bother to click on the associated link.
Your excellent work is wasted unless this is done :-(
Thanks. I've noticed that when I leave such comments they
initially get a number of upvotes, but in some cases they get
downvoted over time. So now I've taken to only leaving them on
posts where I can't come up with an obvious title for the reddit
link. I have no way to say what sort of impact it has on traffic
from reddit, though. Certain types of posts get more than others
and I can't see any correlation with explanatory comments.
