Weird LiveJournal stats

I've been watching the stats of various blog hosting providers over the past year, and I'm puzzled with the LiveJournal stats. From January to October 2005, the number of accounts has grown 51%, however the number of accounts that are "active in some way" has grown only 4% over the same period. Actually, it is stuck below 2.6M since at least June. Am I wrong or has LJ reached a plateau in terms of active/loyal bloggers?

which means the real stats (as much it makes sense to make stats for butcher business) are something on the line of a mixing of newcomers modulo half life duration index, a bit like in nuclear physics. There is also the fact that a weblog is not a person (one person can have many weblogs).
