Almost definitely not. The Mudconnector, for instance, registers
around 125k unique users a month. Not everybody in the MUD community
uses it, but being extremely optimistic about the size of the
market, maybe 1/3 do. That's an extremely optimistic estimate of
375k text MUD users. Everquest alone has more subscribers than that,
and Lineage has millions of players.
