Given I managed to correctly collect a continious statistic over all those years, something which I cannot guarantee, please note that the counts on this page may be distorted for several reasons. Crosslinked searches are included too, which may explain the counts for things like RFC or MS. Also, since early 2004 V.E.R.A. was under heavy 'attack' by robots and web crawlers. I tried to block those, but it seemed to be only partly successful.
