'[OT] PICList statistics (was: Religious rubbish)'

I know that this is going off on a very wild tangent here, but this
thread has made me ask the question of PICList statistics. Namely, "Does
such a thing exist?" and "Where?". I'm talking about such stats like

How many posts there been..
       ..today?      ..this week?
       ..this month? ..this year?   ..altogether?

What was the..
       ..most useless post?
       ..longest thread?
       ..shortest thread?
       ..most talked about/highest number of replies?
       ..most active user?
       ..most unhelpful/abusive user?

You get the idea. Quite a lot of IRC bots can do things, and I seem to
remember that a popular computer game in the early 90's did the same
thing.

Just curious,
Stuart

I suspect the least and most useful thread would be the "Religious Rubbish"
depending upon who you ask.

The most popular would be one of the recurring topics like "what is the best
compiler" or "where should I start".

The most likely shortest is the recurring plea for someone to do the
poster's homework project!

The most unhelpful/abusive is not always obvious. Sometimes I see what
appears to me to be misinformation that may or may not be intentional.

The piclist archive provides some of those. The month overview:
http://www.piclist.com/techref/postbot.asp?by=time

Shows how many posts were made per day, and how many were made in each topic
tag for the month.

I would have been wanting to add a rating system to the archive browser were
you could move to the next post by selecting a 1 to 4 rating of this post.
With hotkey's you could just rest your left hand on the 1 to 4 keys and read
through the days posts very easily.

Aggregate ratings would apply to author, thread and individual posts.

Other suggestions appreciated.

The posts are indexed in an SQL server so anyone who can contribute a bit of
SQL to supply the sort of information below is welcome to speak up and I'm
sure I can find the time to patch it in.

Ah - but HOW do you decide on such ratings. Is each person able to decide
how much weight to give to eg a particular author, or doe this involve
divine fiat ? :-)

Each person rates an individual post and that influences the overall rating
of the thread and author.

Cute, but I don't think it would really work.
It's also pretty abusable, you'd have to also vet the people doing the ratings..

I could code it in Php/Mysql, but would anyone really bother to use it?
