Hi there!

If you are monitoring the number of subscribers of the Perl Weekly that we have on the front page, you can see that it dropped by more than 70 today.

That's because after a long period of time I went through the bounce-reports of Sendgrid, the provider I use to send the messages. There were many reporting No such user or that the email account that you tried to reach is over quota and inactive.. I know I missed some and more will appear in the list next week, but it was enough for today.

BTW, we store the historical data in the src/count.txt file in our repository. If I am not mistaken it peaked on week 370-371 with 6,449 subscribers. Now we are down to 4,523 that we had between the weeks 113-114.

Have a nice week!
