Rough order of magnitude, 1000 - 1200 messages / month
, so let's say 12000 - 15000 messages per year.

Each message averages maybe ??? 200-300 words?  Of
course, it depends on how much quotation of previous
messages you want to count.

So, somewhere around 2.4 million to 3.6  million words
a year?
