The other stat is how much total usenet postings drop over the period!
Actually, I found that the most interesting thing about that page – the
visible trend in Usenet use across all the listed languages. The
significant drops in Usenet activity, and the varying cultural
differences between languages with regard to Usenet, all make a Usenet
activity survey an extremely unreliable measure of language popularity
(unless the only population whose interest in various programming
languages you care about is Usenet users). The movement of various
languages in the Usenet activity rankings could, in combination with a
more universal measure, provide an interesting bit of information about
the cultures of various language communities, though.
