No, that wasn't how I meant that at all. I raised that only as  
another example, that you focus on these meaningless statistics  
rather than discussing issues that would help improve the draft. I  
guess we can now use the fruits of your free-time work as 'evidence'  
for adding or eliminating features.

As I said before, statistics aren't really my thing.  I will say  
though that I joined the group at the end of April/Beginning of May  
time frame and have been conscientiously reading emails and other  
relevant material since then. So, maybe my day one should be adjusted.

Take care,
Rob
