What we can learn from the forums

After a quick glance at the official forums:
In the Game Discussion Section, in the General Discussion section alone, there are 425 pages of 30 threads each.
Quite a few more than the amount you posted here.
Hmmm. Lets do a bit of rough math.
Lets go ahead and round this and the posts here to an even 16000.
We'll even be generous and round up for the GW1Guru posts, to 5000 (Nearly 125% of actual value).
16000/3 = 5333
5000/1 = 5000
Not seeing anything worth noting, given that this is still a selective group of evidence.

I expected the OP to be something more like:
What we can learn from the forums:
Most people in the game want gear progression, so ANet listened and gave it to us.
ANet doesn't listen to the players, in spite of the fact that most of them didn't want gear progression.
Every game that has ever been made was in better shape after six months than GW2, except for the ones that immediately died, which closely resembled GW2.
ANet cares about every area of the game except sPvP, Dungeons, Open world PvE, tPvP, Hardcore Players, WvW, Crafting, Profession Balance, and Casual Players which is why they spend so much time developing other areas.
You can state a preference for chocolate ice cream and people will earnestly, passionately try to persuade you that your taste is wrong. If you state a dislike of chocolate ice cream, just as many people will do the same.
And things like that....

Then you have to find some way to account for the number of people actively using forums has increased across the board which would boost the GW2 numbers (think of it as inflation).
Anyways, the information could result in an interesting conversation, but the amount of work would need to be much higher that is currently shown. If anyone does end up collecting the data (I feel sorry for you, that is a huge number of forums that you have to hunt down) then feel free to post that information in a new thread.
