I don't mean "exceed" literally.
I only visit MSE sporadically, but in those snapshots it seems to me that the furious pace of questions in some sense seems to be outstripping the base of active users who read, vote on, and sometimes answer those questions.
Is my perception accurate? Can it be corroborated or shown false by collected statistics?
(Added). I wonder if most active participants interact with MSE primarily through filters? It seems overwhelming to scan the posed questions directly.
