The Org mailing list is an English language forum for discussing Org. It is used by the diverse community of Org developers, maintainers, contributors, experienced users, and new and prospective users both for discussion and as a repository of information. It was established by the creator of Org-mode, Carsten Dominik, who enjoys the different perspectives and range of interests expressed there.
The list is less formal and more diverse than a site like stackoverflow, which has an org-mode section. Subscribers' messages to the list aren't moderated and there is no formal mechanism to rate questions, answers, or reputations.
List etiquette encourages posters to be precise, concise, and friendly. Lengthy excerpts of quoted material are probably redundant and they clog certain distribution channels. Posters should include enough quoted material to establish the context for their comments and cut away the rest.
The Org mailing list is very active. You can browse it at http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/.

Here are a few stats that I computed from the lists.gnu.org server archives.
I concatenated the archives into one single mbox file, then I used a small utility called gnus-stat.el.
