activity within a group, in general. From what I recall, this thread
originated with a discussion about the number of subscribers along
with the number of posts by various people, and an "activity"
percentage. I think the original post even inquired how we can get
more people active (hence "bridge the gap").
I believe that we're not so bad, in comparison to other newsgroups
out there (and there are a lot). I'm bias, though, because I'm quite
happy with this group...even when it goes off topic. :-)
If you really want to figure out how to get people more active (which
I assume means a higher number of people who post) in this group, at
least from a scientific/sociological approach, you'd probably want to
find the more "active" groups in the Netscan data and try to figure
out what makes them different.
