Representative is stringent requirement.  Not required here.  Indicative
is good enough.

Another way to look at it is this:

It is representative of a segment of users

1. Tom's list is representative of "The complainers".

2. Emacswiki stats is representative of "The Emacs Trivia Collectors".

3. Andrew's list is representative of "Social workers".

4. We can have twitterers

Likewise for reddit or IRC channels.

Each of these channels of information dissemination (Village Pump) has a
characteristic and a profile of it's own.


Saying Emacs user (in Emacs mailing list) is not useful

I am adding this remark for emphasis.  This remark is better read in
conjunction with my "micro-init" suggestion.

Instead of saying Emacs users, we start saying Novelists, Programmers,
Gnus users, Students, Literate Programmers, Frame users, Old timers,
Young ones, Retro theme users.

Such a sub-categorisation allows for nuanced discussions and a richer
perspective on how one may talk to others.

Disposing my 0 cents worth of wisdom.
