Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I think this diary allows me to enunciate the "law of conservation of ETness", basically when I am less active on ET, Barbara hates it less and so contributes more, keeping traffic constant and increasing the quality and diversity of the content.

Nope, it's just hand-waving.

There is room for improvement, I think, through comparative advantage.

Hmmm... I don't think he is on ET any less... it's my desperate try to be a good girlfriend and share the interests of my "bloke". No need for coming up with a formula for anything.

"...increasing the quality and diversity of the content."

Do you really mean it or is this a provocation? Don't forget you're sitting only a few meters away...
