Here is an annoying example of how ‘data’ on the screen eats away ‘information’. Browsing through JSch library’s users mailing list archive is such a pain. When you click on the link, you are presented with this page.

Very nice. I can pick and choose to view mails from as far back as 2002! But are the recent mails (August 2009)? They are below this whole matrix.

What’s more, even if you were to click on any month in the year/month matrix, you still are not shown the mail threads. You again get to see the huge matrix and some even more (un)interesting stats.

I don’t think I am interested in seeing how many mails were exchanged on the second Wednesday of February 2004. I want to see the mail threads, and this statistics bloat comes in my way. Not good.
