Default 6.5 THOUSAND people online 11-12-12?!

Man this site is massive. I love thinking about how many hundreds of different professions and experts there are in this huge pool of users/members.

There's only one month left to consume all your homebrew before the end. Get to drinking.

Well if the dooms day folks are right, I'm going to go out with some darn good beer ready in the fermenter. Some in the keg also.
Just in case you get to choose a couple things to take like a carry on!

I saw that. Amazing. Our population is larger than some cities.

Wow, that's crazy traffic! Is there something I'm missing, where did you find that number?

Never mind, found it on the bottom of the homepage. Guess I never scrolled down that far. Cool that they have birthdays listed and is that long list everyone that's online currently?

What percentage of those do you suppose could have been spam or bot crawls?

Not sure if bots register as users.

Bots on here? Why?
I assumed it was active population. I love that I can ask a question about ANY field (science/math/engineering/cooking) and get professional, community edited answers. Six thousand is insane. I'm from a small town with a big student body (20k) and that number is nearly inconceivable for one interest.

Google just about anything and, often times, you'll get a hit to HBT within the top 10. Is that not the work of a bot crawl?
