Without the commenters, Panda's Thumb would be nothing, and you would not have gotten that big award from Scientific American magazine.
And the evidence that would support this statement is, what, precisely?
PT in its first week passed 1,000 visits per day. We're coming up on our 2e6th visit. I suspect if every post simply referred commenters to the AE AtBC forum, that the visit figures would not change by much. Besides which, J.A. Davison has already laid claim to this argument, saying that banning him would cause PT to wither and die. Guess what? Traffic has been up since then.
