On "Statistics" Page, Only Show Stats of Real, Active Users
Short, concise description of the idea
On the "Statistics" page are displayed various statistics (gender, free/EA/paid/perm, location, and age) about all LiveJournal accounts. I think only statistics about real, active users should be shown.
Full description of the idea
By "real users," I mean personal journals (as opposed to shared/community/news/syndicated); I know that not all personal journals are totally "real," but it's a good start. By "active users," I mean "active in some way." (I don't know quite what that phrase means, but it appears on the Statistics page with a precise-seeming figure, so I assume it's well-defined.)
There could be a special mode, stats.bml?all=1 or the like, to get statistics for absolutely all accounts.
The "Users" section of the page could remain the same, though it might be nice to add a few lines saying how many accounts are personal vs. shared vs. community vs. news vs. syndicated.
