I persoannly would be against this, a lot of people who I know, who
participate frequently don't flush their buufers so that they can build up
a lot of blocks so that when they do flush they appear in the top ten.

When you say that these people shouldn't be included in the stats - do you
mean that they should be deleted?  What if poeple stopped participating,
for what ever reason, and then decided to continue?
