Hey Mike Hind,

Thanks for reading and responding. This also struck me when I was looking at the results. I kept thinking it was an error, but after checking my script and math over and over, it appeared to be true. People don’t seem to recommend posts much. The good news is that people recommend non-buzzy stories 1% more than they do buzzy stories. If you run a publication, I’d love for you to try the script on your stats and share the results.
