What drives traffic? Reader comments

Tuesday, June 19: Our lead editorial on Nifong and the Duke case rises to No. 6 on charlotte.com's What's Hot list. Editorials generally don't make this list.
It's just three notches below "Doctors find six sewing needles in baby," wryly noted Lew Powell.
Obviously, the case has long been an Internet hot button. Still, I suspect enabling reader comments on this one helped lots too. By 2 p.m., 30 people had commented online, and I bet each one of those commentators hits the site again after they make their comment to see how people respond. At least once.
