Opinion: From our readers - Record figures for The Guardian's site

God knows we all get facts wrong occasionally.

But I'm fairly sure my colleague Emily Bell didn't claim 1.3 million unique users for guardian.co.uk (Features, 8 August) - not least because we are all terrifically proud of our audited figures for June 2008 of 20.5 million. In fact, we've barely shut up about being the first UK newspaper website to clear the 20m hurdle. And, indeed, we become frankly obnoxious once we start listing the reasons why: the continued dedication of all our journalists across the web, The Guardian and The Observer, meaning our traffic continues to break records in what is now a ferociously competitive environment.
