If it is only true

#Wikipedia monthly traffic #statistics
When a growth of 60% is predicted for all the Wikipedia traffic from last month, it is a moment for a reality check. What is going on, are the numbers correct, if it is only true ...?

I did the obvious thing; I asked Erik Zachte. He had already noticed this anomaly and responded that he had added the numbers again and this gives the same numbers. The statistics are based on the numbers provided by Domas and perhaps something changed at his end.

I would love to believe the numbers; it is fantastic news but, when the numbers seem to be too good to be true they probably are.
