Most commented posts of the last year

The 32 posts on this journal since my last tally which got more than 15 comments (I've lowered the bar - last time, 42 posts had more than 20 comments, this time it was only 14, which no doubt reflects the general migration to Twitter and Facebook and perhaps my own less obsessive blogging this year). Top 17 in bold, top 8 and top 4 in larger fonts.
