Donna and all:

A response, below, with apologies that the discussion seems to be
moving away from survey tools . . .

JS: I would think (maybe I made the mistake of assuming) it's quite
obvious that we all know this. I'm sorry you chose what I honestly
tried to make a very helpful post to vent your frustration. What I
would say is that I happened to have time to try to help, in hopes of
speeding up the discussion so we wouldn't have to rehash the same
points and could *start*, rather than end, at where we left off in 2011.

I also was trying to highlight the value of this list's archives and
how to use them when they actually *can* be helpful and save a lot of time.

I sure am sorry to see that you've become so frustrated with the
list. I regret my efforts to try to help the community gain even more
value from the list seem to have been taken very much otherwise than
I intended.

Wishing everyone a good day.
