Well, looking at the last five hours of activity on #erlang, I saw three  
questions asked, no responses. (To be fair I did catch the tail end of what  
appeared to be a Q&A session upon logging in.) This dearth of activity is  
in spite of the way-too-many-people-for-me-to-count logged in.

I also know that the one and only person I've ever felt the need to gag on  
Freenode was an Erlanger on #erlang. I'm on about 20 channels right now and  
have been so for years (with the specific channels varying, of course, with  
my interests). And despite all that I've only once felt the desire to gag  
someone, and that was on #erlang. (And the guy being gagged was being  
gagged because he was being a jerk to new users, no less. Not exactly the  
face any community wants to put forth, right?) Oh, the guy also cited Eric  
Naggum. As a good thing.
