To sum up what full-disclosure has become:
random arrested and charged with drug possession = 30+ posts
unreal ircd backdoored = 4? responses.
But, most of us immediately understand the issues from the IRCD
backdoor, whereas at least the discussion worth reading in the
"Congratulations Andrew" thread has actually been on-topic, clarifying
common (at least among the ignorati that style themselves "hackers"
these days) misunderstandings about what constitutes authorized access
_and_ is also (loosley) on-topic for the actual thread as this issue
seems likely to be at the heart of any case involving the iPad/AT&T
data "leak", in which the person who is the actual subject of the
"Congratulations Andrew" thread also seems likely to be involved...
So your stats are rather misleading.
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
