One hit wonders
« on: March 24, 2012, 10:53:35 AM »
It looks like Badger347 will not come back.   He was on for one hour and made one post. So I looked thru the member database wondering how many people -- what fraction -- make one post and disappear. I thought I could grab the pages for a significant sample and cut and paste them into a spreadsheet to get the stats.  The problem is there are so many 0 posters.  So I gave up and came back later.

There are 91 pages * 30 entries per page but the last is only 2 entries so that is
2702 total.

ZERO ENTRIES
There are about 14 pages of 0 entries.  Counting the over- and underflow that is
385 = 14.3%

One of these had the name ViagraEnLigne so some of these are robo entries by spambots.

1 ENTRY
238 = 8.8%

2 ENTRIES
132 = 4.9%

3 ENTRIES
60 = 2.2%

4 ENTRIES
121 = 4.5%

5 ENTRIES
64 = 2.4%

Bored with counting further I sought out the median.

MEDIAN
10

As I learned in statistics class the word "average" is a colloquialism with 4 different meanings in statistics.  The median and the mean can both be properly called the "average".   So the "average" member on WWGHA makes 10 posts and quits.

About the middle of the middle page I single out as our stereotype OurGodIsGreat and leave you with his final post:

Gee..I feel unique in a obsessive compulsive kind of way.
You better believe it's not butter or you'll burn in hell forever and EVER!
Get on your knees right now and thank GOD for not being real!

Well, in this particular dataset, you are an anomaly.  Or, maybe your an outlier, not sure?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but my sensitive side senses I've just been called a weirdo.
You are so off my valentines card list now.

I corrected myself.  On Saturdays after 11am it is time for my 8 hour afternoon nap.

I've always said that if you're not at least a little bit weird you're probably not very interesting.
If we ever travel thousands of light years to a planet inhabited by intelligent life, let's just make patterns in their crops and leave.

HAL, would it help with all the recent resource limit errors if some of the old accounts are deleted to free up server space?

I am in the top 1%, right? Right? It's nice to be at the top of something, even if only atheist nerditude.

Providing rednecks with sunblock since 1996.

I once met a man who claimed to be a genius, then boasted that he was a member of "Mesa".

Think for yourself.
