I'll quote Pelagos question from the forum:

"It would be interesting if they could give figures on how the number
varies with different karma thresholds, and if they could say at which
number of users they are happy emailing (e.g. are they happy when the
number goes below 10,000, below 5,000, or what, and what karma threshold
does this correspond to)."

> Or better yet: with a number of forum posts. How about 10?
> How many emails we'd have to send then?
