Hey, man, don't you think this statistics is a bit stupid? It shows only how many users your statistics software has, not *BSD users count. And I bet you have it installed by default in PCBSD (and not others). So, what's the point?

It's a lower bound (assumming no cheating which you can't detect anyway) on the number of users you have, which might not be /completely/ useless. Using those numbers for userbase comparisons is silly of course :)

Unless the bsdstats script can do reasonably anonymous data collection so that we can all turn it on by default I don't see that changing.
