A highly unscientific scan of the erlang-questions online
archive revealed 798 different posters since the list
started in December 1998. I counted the number of posts as
7469.

How many lurkers are out there is beyond me.

The top 50 on active posters are listed below. I have not
tried to correlate email addresses as people move. A few
obvious duplicates:

Me:     4 addrs, 506 posts total
Sean:   2 addrs, 362 posts
Klacke: 3 addrs, 169 posts
Joe:    4 addrs, 158 posts
Tobbe:  2 addrs, 129 posts

The activity per year has been:

Year  Addrs Posts
1998  25     62   (December only)
1999  156   805
2000  255  1596
2001  283  1735
2002  308  2359
2003  130   917   (Jan-Feb only)

Tools used:  http.erl, ets:update_counter/3, and ets:i/1
with regexp matching. 73 lines of code. I'm sure I could
have made it much shorter and more unreadable using perl
and/or some grep/awk. (:
