After having just yesterday released a Recent Commenters plugin, I've deprecated it and rolled it into this new plugin since Top Commenters functionality only requires slight changes to the code for the previous plugin. And rather than maintain two slightly different plugins, I merged them.
This plugin outputs a list of the N top commenting visitors (with their total comments count) or the most recently commenting authors (with hyperlinks to their homepage if they provided an URL). You can define $before and $after text/HTML to bookend each list item. Specify $num_people to control how many people to list.
