I don't have any idea since it isn't obvious where anything originates. 
    I'd guess most of the posting happens on the lists (at least on 
backuppc where it is mostly people who were on the list before the forum 
gateway existed) but there might be a lot of people who read/search the 
forums and some new user questions might come from there.
