We finally agree on something
. I think your estimate might be spot on.
90% of the excitment is being generated on blu-ray.com and, to a lesser extent, here at AVS.
Here, the thread is 9 pages long with about 240 posts. But, if you count the number of people posting, it's about 40 people (posting multiple times).
The giant thread on that other forum is 38 pages long with 745 posts...but only about 105 people posting generated those messages.
When you consider that a number of those posts on both boards are by people registered at both sites, there may only be 100 posters generating all of that internet message traffic. A small portion likely ordered on the first day. Of course, there will be lurkers and others who will get caught up and will have placed early orders. But I suspect a lot of people just worked themselves into a frenzy and their numbers are more likely measured in the dozens than in the thousands.
