The BBC news site is being odd today

The BBC News website has for a long time shown ten sites in its “Most read” list; earlier today it was showing just two, and now it’s showing eight. It set me wondering whether there was a story that someone didn’t want to be seen as popular, but then they could have just rigged the results rather than suppressing them. Maybe it was a compromise on ethics; perhaps they had to hide the popularity of a story, but wanted to do so without fixing the list?
