What are the 25 largest online communities on the web (not including
eBAY etc. but more focused on a specific topic, product or media?)

For example, gaming enthusiasts?  insurance forums?  dating
communities?  communities of people who suffer from health ailments? 
iPOD enthusiasts? Rock music enthusiasts?

Which forums / sites are the largest representations of those communities?

How many users are there at each of those sites?

Please go to the web site below. It has all the information you want,
and far more. It's a directory of all the major BBS/Forums on the
Internet, it is searchable and you can sort by different criteria.
Very powerful.

Tell me what else you will require to have received a fully
satisfactory answer. The list of the "largest [insert topic] on the
internet" is always subjective based on what is being measured, and
statistics change every day.

What the web site below does is track traffic and internet stats for
all the major forums. You can just take what you need.

Big-Boards - Ranking Page,EN&sort=alexa

I have it presorted to sort by ALEXA Ranking, which is the view I
think you want to see. Play around with it.

Let me know.
