    Probably not. They're diametrically opposed.

    So we have a quick result. From thread, which have been active in january up to now we do have 121 starting with letters and 8 starting with other symbols (3 "1" and "2" one "5" and one inverted "?" )

    The letter "W" has a share of 16 of those threads or 13.3% in the English language (which is the natural refernce here) the occurence of "W" is 2,36%, so expected an occurnec of 3. (rounded because of obvious reasons)

    Interesting other letters:

    "E" occurence: 3 expected occurence: 15 (So we do have a symmetrical problem with w and e. This thread coud also be called: "eerie shortage of threads starting with"

    "H" and "N" occur exactly at the rate expected.

    I have a small excel file whic I can't past in here but research is going on 🙂
