This section is about the file: web/bin/normalize
Check the counts of issues per article for user barack-obama only with -c, but don't fix anything:
web/bin/normalize -c -u barack-obama article-issue-count
Print the full correct normalized state with -p:
web/bin/normalize -f -u issue-follower-count
Fix the counts of issue follower if any are wrong with -f, thus potentially altering the database:
web/bin/normalize -f -u issue-follower-count
