Some minimal statistics:

There are 1516 different "e-mail domain names" (the thing after
"@" in the e-mail addresses) of subscribers of r-help and r-announce.

Using bash: 
(for l in r-help r-announce;do sed 's/.*@//' $l;done)  | \
 sort | uniq | tee /tmp/r-domains | wc
   1516    1516   21218

This list with 1516 lines starts with
and ends with

If someone is volunteering composing such a list, I can e-mail
that list to her/him.
