Sure. Pre the introduction of no anons creating
articles you could
roughly work out how much vandle fighting an admin was doing by their
deletion rate. Someone posted a list of the number of admin actions
had been done by each admin in the last month. About 200 admins racked
up over 100 actions. Once you factor in all the admins who got their
100 by doing things other than vandalism (mine tend to come from
WP:CP) you end up with less than 200. Factor in growth from then and
you probably have around 200 admins vandle fighting.
Your statement fails to acknowledge that the admins who don't make 100
deletions in a month are still active and still are fighting
vandalism. I don't delete 100 articles a month. I doubt I ever have,
but I certainly used to be very active in combatting vandalism.
You underestimate the good that many people doing a little can do.
"Admin actions" include blocking. (Not agreeing with geni, just pointing
out a fact.)
