I work a fair amount with Military History Visualized, and he will occasionally send me some of the "best" comments. This is a real one on his newer Great Purge video:

"Can you bring the source of that crazy numbers of purged, imprisoned, executions... you don't told about purge are a inner matter of the Communist Party of Soviet Union and only affected its affiliated, the matter of the purges where things like inactivity, criminal offenses, violation of Party discipline (like to be drunk in a meeting), defects in personal conduct or alien elements or connection thereto, the normal things any organization and specialty parties, can put your ass out of it. To be affiliated to the CPSS give you access to all space of the party, including archives, then its logical purge people that are not giving any contribution to the pary however can use it for his personal purposes or egoist attitudes, and in fact the central party take actions against all those use thte party and his position for control it for his own interest and power; the responsability to build the communist culture and new society. At least they wanted in his team people that working or moral examples, intelectuals, etc... not drunks, oligarchs, laze people, etc... like in capitalist parties. But meanwhile western people worried about the inner issues of a party, those countries were killing thousand of persons every years, americans invading corea and vietnam frenchs killing argeline citicens in his country, and a long list of wars and attrocities for robbery of their resources in exchange of poverty and missery (year, freedom market, fair trade), for all over those years, Soviet Union celebrate every year the day of the peace for have no wars with any other country of the world."

Didn't the USSR keep pretty good record of its own regarding the number of people tried?

Yeah, we have a lot of sources on the subject. There are gaps, but none anywhere near large enough to say "we can't ever know the scale of what happened."
