The Top 50 Talk Threads of 2009

In the Best Thread Overall nominations post some folks were asking about the top threads of 2009 in terms of most-favorited or most-trafficked. I'm going to list most-favorited first, since that's probably a truer reflection of popularity among SE'ers than most-trafficked (I'll explain why after the most-favorited list).

The Top 50 in Terms of Traffic

The most-trafficked items reflect not only the amount of clicks an item has gotten from our dedicated, awesome daily SE readers but from search traffic or from links from other websites. So these here, you'll see, differ a bit from those above. You're more likely to see things like "How do I?" or "What's the best XYZ?" since those reflect what people on search engines might find. Make sense?
