1,000 of those are not about the daily activities of peoples cats.
100 contain anything approaching "useful" information.
10 meta-sites gather up anything interesting from those (with high overlap).
And egroups, collects all the porn.

Why is this a bad thing? Even if _all_ the interesting people in the world
put out something newsy say once a month, Keeping 10 sites full would be a
good trick.
