What do you mean "zombie" initiates? Inactive?
Another question -- is jcwren getting a direct dump/feed from the database or pulling via the XML feeds? I was considering using the XML feeds to pull down a summary of all the nodes so I could examine reputation, not just XP. For example, reputation from initial posts vs from replies, or in different categories, or the ratio of total reputation to total XP.
Is that possible -- is reputation available for nodes other than my own? My quick scan of the XML generators didn't reveal it.
