Reader engagement?  Maybe eye-catching, but people will read if the text is interesting enough.
wow. Impressive. You figured that out all by yourself. I should take a look some of your other posts

I’m trying to remember what was happening before covid. Could someone remind me what was the state of the union in regards to the whole racism and woke ness (not saying they’re related at all)
I recall we had covid and everyone was cooped up and then George Floyd happened. Since then the African American community exploded. What was the situation before all this?
Obama used racist language and undertones, albeit subtly. ie If you don't vote for him, you're racists; Michelle: I've never been proud of my country before (misquote);Obama bringing to White House the professor who claimed racism in being stopped 'for being black'.  etc
Trump was elected partly as a backlash by the vast swaths of America that's not racist and doesn't like being called racist.
Then we got the Steel Dossier, and the one sided press.
Now we're on Biden who actually said Mitt Romney was "going to put you all back in chains."  and “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Glad you didn't leave out all the racist remarks and dog whistles from the last admin.
Oh, wait you did.  :)

Posting died down in 2019 already after CC game largely went way of world. Then covid came along, and combination of lockdown boredom and covid discussion brought it back to life. Now that covid has largely gone the way of the CC game (only still taken seriously by a select few that know better than the rest of us), it's back down, I think.

Ran out C&H strips or did royalties go up?

In the [ img ] place you can add "width=1000" or any other number. for example (quote this post to see what I added)

On the post image link, which setting is selected?
It looks like "thumbnail", switch it to "do not resize my image"
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
