Didn't ever think about it..
if anything, I've mentally noted that this forum isn't as big as I'd like it to be.
But I'm talking less about size and number of threads and more about diversity of threads and topics discussed.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
Nah, it's like skipping stones across a pond - the pond swallows the stone but not before it has danced across the surface. And then, completely relaxed, it sinks into the depths of the pond not knowing what it may discover.
Every reply is a bounce. And if there is no bounce, there is always another stone.
And at the bottom of the pond there is a lapidary of pretty stones.
I've never really been overwhelmed by it...
I don't often browse the forums. I just use the iSpy and check the past threads I've been on. I find it hard to join any other forums that exist because they often lack iSpy.
There's so many threads and subforums that I can't possibly read it all or even come close. I read one interesting thread and by the time I'm done with that, five new ones have opened up. So many threads so little time. How to decide what to read?
I love all the channels and the subforums for each temperament and having alot of choices but yeah, its overwhelming.
On the contrary, I love it. That's just me, however --- I like having everything arranged by themes, and sub-themes.

With more ideas from various sources floating around, there's a higher chance of striking gold. (Obviously this depends on the type of members a community consists of.)
