So we take the total set of FAS people and then look if that address
is subscribed to ANY of our mailing lists and if so then count them?
Is that right?
That count won't involve them actually POSTING, right?
Well, they're looking for "active" in that group, which says posting
to me, but I'll check that with the researchers. I don't think we can
delineate in that way for FAS groups, though; approved memberships is
the extent of what we can track there.

I wonder where mpdehaan is when you need to abuse him.
Actually, you may want mpdehaan-jr, a/k/a ianweller. ;-)

responses? Please tell me we're not talking about going through the
No -- counts of group/list membership specifically for respondents to
the survey. It just wasn't appropriate to dump that list of names
I'll get that list to you, along with the specific requests to apply
to it, and some input from the researchers about their definition of
"active" per above.

I can help. I reserve the right to cry and flagellate myself with
some sort of hooked whip.
Someone needs a hug! ;-)
