Well, I haven't gotten one, so I expect that I am not included.
Which is all to the good, because I would never give permission
to be included in this kind of study.

I'm appalled at someone coming in and taking comments out of
context to use in some study. Mailing lists are NOT usenet
(even though they are often gatewayed). I see mailing lists
as developing a definite culture and community of their own
in a way that newsgroups do not. And my sense of community
has just been violated.
