Just so you know, that nobody knows that the population is doubling as of 2000. That won't be learned until 2003. Read my story, Not Quite Alone to see the backstory to that discovery. --MatthiasRat 05:21, 10 March 2008 (EDT)

Yes, I read the story (or at least enough of the others) to know that in 2000 the true growth rate of the changed was not known. I had hoped I gave that impression by saying "As far as anyone could tell the number appeared to double every August." I guess I didn't use enough weasel words.
With this method of talk how does one tell the previous commenter that I have replied?

If they've added this page to their Watchlist, they'll notice. And if they keep tabs on the Recent Changes page, they'll notice. Also, use : marks to intent to essentially create a comment thread. I've added two to mine here, and added one for each new line for your reply to Matthias. This makes it look like a coherent comment thread.--Buck 23:09, 13 March 2008 (EDT)
