Yes this is out of date as I click post and there is an issue of certain categories getting posted to less often so accumulating more posts, but it's also a look at what PW posters are interested in. Draw your conclusions pleases...

"you'd have to track the last, say 50 or 100, posts and see what categories they are in" and you question how I spend my time? Try doing that and post the information next month when you are done. It was also about comment amount not post amount. This was an informal and imperfect poll. It took me ten minutes because I was curious, just thought I would share.
