Notes ====
- A line in the body of a post is considered to be original if it does *not* match the regular expression /^\s(?:>|:|\S+>|\+\+)/.
- All text after the last cut line (/^-- $/) in the body is considered to be the author's signature.
- The scanner prefers the Reply-To: header over the From: header in determining the "real" e-mail address and name.
- Original Content Rating (OCR) is the ratio of the original content volume to the total body volume.
- When no crossposting has taken place during the period of the stats people with 0 crossposts will reach the top ten crossposters.
- The stats are generated automatically every Sunday morning by a Cron script. The script is a modified version of the news-scan script available on CPAN and runs on a GNU/linux machine with Leafnode. It can also be used on a Windows machine with Cygwin and Hamster.
- Please send all comments or requests for copies of the script to Jonathan Bryce (jonathan at jbryce dot org dot uk).
