denote any quality; people who are not among the top posters also often have
very important and interesting things to say, though they are not listed
here by name.

Have a lot ..., lots of fun!

0 posts on Tuesday and Wednesday?! Maybe you
should post a diff between a comp.lang.ruby
and ruby-talk@ruby-lang.org stats so we can see
when the gateway breaks.

The stats should be taken with a grain of salt. Weekly posting does
not always imply any quality....

I'm sorry for the errors in stats, there were some link problems at my end so my local nntp cache was not up-to-date.

Thanks for pointing out, I shall take care in future.
