Jimbotalk cunt count

fullDuring the month of October, visitors to Jimmy Wales’ talk page saw the word “cunt” 201,144 times.

So, are y’all ready to have your daughters edit Wikipedia now?

Jimmy Wales’ talk age is arguably the most visible page in the project, at least for the volunteers who edit Wikipedia.  It probably also qualifies as one of the major “dramah boards” and is also heavily culled for unacceptable remarks.  So it could be regarded as something of a canary in the coal mine, when it comes to attitudes towards diversity users.

Here is the math:

The days of October are listed below in a column.  The first number after the date is the number of page views for that day, available here.  The second number, in bold, is how many times the word “cunt” appeared on the page that day.  The count was taken using a search function on the last edit of each day.   The third number, in green, is the product of number of times the word appeared and the number of page views, giving the total number of times the word was viewed on that day.  The last number, in dark blue, is a running total of the number of times the word was viewed.
