Please don't get me wrong, I am interested in understanding how popular jee is among ljc members. My first impression, as I said already is that
it's not very popular, but I am very happy to be proven wrong...

Thanks to all the people that took the time to reply to my post and share their opinions.

There's a load of standards in the JavaEE space that could, at time of
conception, been vastly improved with open and constructive feedback
from the wider community.  That's still a problem today, and still a
problem on an ongoing basis.  In the core Java space we've been very
successful in getting a lot of feedback and assistance to Expert
Groups on several JSRs, especially 335 and 310 and JCP members are
actively serving on several other Expert groups and trying to move
towards a status of community-driven, rather than vendor-driven
standards.  We're keen to try to extend this effort out to other areas
of the JCP.

Unfortunately when you post an unnecessarily immature and snarky
response to a thread that was, root cause, an honest enquiry it really
does frustrate me.  Most of the mails that go here are either about
events or entirely reasonable discussion of technology in general, and
Java in particular.  We have a level of discourse that standards far
above the average for an internet based forum, where people frequently
choose snark and immaturity over informed discussion of the issues.
I'd like to see this standard maintained, rather than descend slowly
towards the level of Reddit or Hacker News.
