Well, from Parajunkee's sad experience I learned you need to do your best to prevent security threats, though if you ask me you can never be 100% safe from someone's malicious intent. Also, since I moved from Blogger I learned that the monthly views might have been not that far off via the Blogger's Stats actually, I mean they were sort of off but not as monumentally as I might have thought.
