    How many different posters are actually posting on the general threads? Is it 20, 30, 15...more? Or is it just the same few keeping this alive.

    The number of active Posters depend, but you made a test for the Readers eralier (and probably not all gave thier thumb 😉 )

    Oh my orthography...
    One way to find out is the thread killer statistics. We have around 30 (different) thread Killers in a typical month (yes February was dramatically untypical). If you factor in that some People post a lot without killing many threads and we hav e to one or other casual poster you have your result.

    The exact number is 72. However, only 53 contribute substantially. There are precisely 14 high frequency posters who actually keep this feature active.

    These were calculated by an algorithm that analyzed unique identifiers through a brute iterative filter.

    I have supposedly driven hundreds away and banned-for-life untold numbers of others, just for disagreeing with me, that's right, and when I tried to do the same, apparently, I was driven off the Debates Forum by the posters there. So, to answer your question, I don't know. But a much better question would have been one about me, to which I might have given this answer.

    I suspect, without any data to back me up, that there are many more readers than active posters. Not everyone here has an itchy trigger finger.

    Be interesting to know how many silent readers there are.
    I suspect very few.

    Thumb me down if you read this and do not post.
    Thumb up if you read this and are an active poster.
