|The shiny new LJ Stat-o-matic

So, after 2 hours of writing some truely horrid Java code, I now have some shiny new comment stats from my shiny new LJ Stat-o-matic!
Top commenters on boggyb's LiveJournal
Total Commenters: 79
Total Comments: 1676 (not including 148 deleted and 3 screened)
Report generated Sun Nov 06 23:14:41 GMT 2011 by boggyb's LJ Stat-o-matic 1.0 (inspired by scrapdog's LJ Comment Wizard)
Credit where credit's due: scrapdog's original LJ Comment wizard is the inspiration for the tool and the result formatting, although I've ended up with a different calculation for the bars (his looks logarithmic, but I couldn't be bothered to do that and just made mine linear).
The other major difference with my stats is that I've excluded deleted and screened comments from the results. This has demoted Anonymous to #9 and restored olego to his rightful place at #2.
Source code is available if you want to run it yourself, but be warned - as said above, it was thrown together rather quickly over a couple of hours and doesn't contain a single comment!
