Welp, I generated stats (by month) for the main IRC channel (#undergroundnews) for anyone remotely interested
You can browse the stats here
Please note that the stats are NOT
complete (as my internet connection isn't exactly 100% reliable). Additionally, January 2005 is incomplete (if anyone has a complete log file let me know and I'll generate stats from it).
Monthly stats will be published shortly after the month ends (IE, April's statistics will be published early May).
A short excerpt:
+pergesu "my friends just found my mom's vibrator"
~Gizmo "i'll trade you my fraggles for your smurfs.."
