those who see a big hole in the numbers
total contributors at May 2010 ~250,000
Those who have signed up ~9,000
Those who have not signed up ~77,000

the gap I guess refers to accounts which have been completely idle and
will be prevented from editing
(source, LWG minutes 5th April 2011)

I still have trouble understanding how 9,000 of 86,000 is a large
majority.
Those who signed up after May 2010 got no option, so they can't be
construed as supporting either side.
