Another question: how can there be 0 different posters in the last
2000 posts in comp.lang.beta?  It seems to me that, irrespective of
this being a very rough indicator of language popularity, your method
has some very grave flaws in it.  (That, or you've utterly failed to
explain how it works.)

Unless you can justify your methodology better, I would say these
numbers are useless even for a rough (and skewed) estimate.
