Commsrisk Top Ten for November 2022

October saw Commsrisk receive more visitors within a calendar month than any previous month in the 16-year history of the website, but November immediately smashed that record again. The sad news was that many came to read the obituary of a dear fried and respected member of our professional community; I would gladly swap every page view for an opportunity to see him one more time.
