Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ixtoc leaked ten times less on average (10 thousand barrels vs, 100 thousand barrels) as well as being in shallow water. The current spill is already the fourth largest in history and will overtake Ixtoc I pretty soon (given that we're only halfway through the drilling of the relief wells).

By laying out pros and cons we risk inducing people to join the debate, and losing control of a process that only we fully understand. - Alan Greenspan
