I try not to count them as the true #1 because the vast majority of posts on gaiaonline are "bump". Literally one word, "bump." You get bb gold for posting, and you use those credits for buying clothing for your avatar. I'm not kidding.

But yes in terms of raw post count
Gaia Online is #1,
4Chan is #2,
PBN is #18,
General [M]ayhem is down to like #68

IIRC PBN broke the top 10 a few years back. And yeah gaia post count is like 4 chan count, useless. But 24.x million users is huge. I always try to imagine the hardware required for that.

24 million users is also a misnomer. That's 24 million avatars. Again, the vast majority of them are owned by the same people with 5-10 accounts each. IIRC they're only running on 5-6 machines total.

*edit* that was years ago apparently. They're on 50+ machines now. 30 web servers, 20 other.
