Statistics for RCM

Just playing with a stats program for a.m.c. Thought I'd post a report for R.C.M. Likely there are bugs in it since I've just started playing with
this stuff.
For the computer literate types, I am running leafnode and Garry Knights perl script on a W2K box using Cygwin www.cygwin.com

To show that most of the articles that get the most responses are political crap ("Top 20 threads by no. of articles"), and that they mostly consist of full-quotes ("Top 20 threads by size in KB")?
Thanks, I knew that before. :-)

To prove my claim that most of the discussions here is just plain shit not belonging here:
I have marked *clearly* OT-postings with OT and was very liberal what is belonging here or not, according to the charter:

This makes 491 OT postings compared to 290 On-Topics. WOW! 62.8% Off-Topics, 37.1% On-Topics.
Not to forget the on-topics where Gunner Arsch or Larry "Sponge Bob" Jaques jump in and make a political discussion out of it.

<snip> Thanks for the effort/information. I hope that you will be able to run the stats for both AMC and RCM on an ongoing basis.

Interesting!
Ignoring TMTNTC (too much trolling nothing to contribute) henceforth may change things a bit.

I gotta' know what "Top 20 responders by original text (> 5 posts)" means. I'm #5 on that list and I don't know how I should feel about it. 8-)
