Wow! I did not think I was most active here, nor is it list where I'm most 
active at all. Its not big surprise to me - I either participate in discussion
or I do not and if I participate, you can expect several emails per day 
and I usually answer immediatly (almost always in public and not private). 
And part of the problem is that I type at >400 symbols/minute, its faster 
and often easier for me to type then to say (though on public meetings 
I'mprobably just as active) and I'm not sure I can really stop myself 
even if I know it maybe seen as a problem. But I'll try to keep it down a 
little, leaving space for everybody else (except next week when I'll post 
about whois) - this is especially important because newcomers will not 
participate if the list is dominated by same people.

BTW: Does top-25 account for over 80% of all emails?
