My reader shows this message right before your post: Note: The author
of this message requested that it not be archived. This message will
be removed from Groups in 3 days (Jul 22, 12:02 am).

I was wondering, why would you request that? It seems that over time -
assuming you'll post more of these stats- there would be some interest
in comparing stats from different weeks.

In usenet parlance, this is simply setting the
X-No-Archive flag. There's not really any "request"
involved. Why Google chooses to word it that way is
anybody's guess. I've read that they don't even really
"remove" it from their archives, but only from the
publicly available ones.

Matter of fact, before dejanews came along, all
usenet was transitory, with most ISP servers having
retention times on the order of 10 days or two weeks.
Usenet archives weren't even a serious concept. IIRC,
it wasn't until there was a dejanews archive that the
X-No-Archive flag even came into being.

How many of the past stats have you googled? Soo...
not *that* much interest. ;-)

I view the weekly stats as sort of snapshots that
present a somewhat interesting view of the "current"
period. Kind of like a newspaper. You read it and
throw it away.
The monthly stats give a longer term overview, so I
don't flag those; more like a monthly magazine that you
might keep around for awhile.

Bottom line though, if someone (like Daveb, aka
lockjaw, for instance) is interested enough in
archiving the weekly Stats, all he has to do is quote
the whole post before adding a comment to the bottom.
Voila. He's now demonstrated his fascination for the
stats by archiving the post himself.

I really like the stats. Nobody should mistake it for a review of
quality of dialogue meter, but it does give a great snapshot of what is
going on in ac. For a group that is so obsessed in general with numbers,
measurements, etc, it is a natural extension of what goes on in ac.

One of the guys who uses a different script on a
different newsgroup includes this disclaimer at the
end of every week's analysis:

DISCLAIMER
Please, take the stats with a dash of salt,
quantity might not always imply quality.

For a split second I thought of including something
similar, but I generally steer away from stating the
obvious. ;-)

Obsessed??? ;-)

As people get more fed-up with the google interface
and begin looking for real newsreaders, they may also
find it useful to see what user agents are most popular.
Here too, "most popular" doesn't necessarily imply best
for any particular individual, but the "Top 10 User
Agent" lists at least serve as a starting point.

Matter of fact, if any disclaimers are warranted
they'd be that google is notorious for multiple posts
so take that number with a grain of salt, and that the
time zone listing is artificially weighted towards the
Pacific time zone and GMT/UTC.

Of rather greater interest is the average number of posts: 2006 --
2,663.

2007 -- first six months: 1,530

Google formerly ranked AC activity as "high" now ranked "medium"

That doesn't surprise me in the slightest. The use
of the word "value" speaks volumes.

Probably not. It would be akin to explaining why you
don't find value in art, or why you find no value in
following common social convention (rules of netiquette,
for instance).

I've tried to make it as easy as possible for anyone
who doesn't want to see these to filter them. Either
of two filters would be effective: the From header
with "Stats," or where the Subject line starts with
"AC Stats." To be extra sure, filter both.
