While we welcome thoughtful criticisms of our methods and analysis, a recent blog penned by Professor Michale Wolfson of the University of Ottawa does a disservice to the discussion when he suggests the results are misleading and the analysis was done unfairly without adequate justification.

(Yes, Dr. Evil, that's one. billion. dollars -- or $999,440,106.20 CDN).I can't claim any insider information as to what this means to AOL/Huffpost in general, or AOL/Huffpost Canada in specific. At minimum, I'm hoping for a new stapler.
