Pointless statistics

Make a statistics category for the meta list on the left. It would contain things such as: total number of ideas, total annotations, number of users, ideas per hour, most popular category, web hits on the HB, bandwidth used, file size of all the ideas, etc.

I know most of these things can be accessed using modified filters, but many people don't know this.

And this would affect you or the "many people who don't know this" (probably because it's complete baloney) how?

Well, I think it would be very interesting (though possibly a whole ton of work for a certain busy webmistress). Maybe I should get out more.

It's whynot.net, not .com, and I don't think statistics create a problem for them. (For one, I can't quite see where those that Aq_Bi asks for are available, either.)
