I was recently looking for an adjective to describe how many answers a question received after being bountied. One word I thought of was multitude.
Initially my question didn't receive many answers. However, thanks to Lilienthal's generous bounty, I now have a multitude of answers to choose from.
According to Dictionary.com, a multitude refers to:
a great number; host:
a multitude of friends.
a great number of people gathered together; crowd; throng.
the state or character of being many; numerousness.
the multitude, the common people; the masses.

After some thought, I'm unsure whether multitude is an accurate term for this scenario. The aforementioned bounty attracted seven different answers to my question, which seems too small to be called a multitude.
How large of a number does a multitude refer to?
