[pct-l] Gear Test Notifications - Tabulations to date


It is no surprise that you would have emails that never got copied to the
list. The list sends its messages to each subscriber's email. From there, if
they chose REPLY, their message goes only to the person who posted and
subscribers never see it. If they choose REPLY ALL, then a copy goes to the
list as well as to the poster.

That said, one can only analyze the data one has, and the only source
available to the public is the list archives. Hence, that is the data I used
and, as I said, 11 responses out of a subscriber population of several
hundred is a poor sample. It is however the only sample available. My
comments about the unresponsive sheep still remains valid.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the reviews and the discussions on the BPGT
group and website. I just don't think they belong here.

Best wishes,

Bob Bankhead
