I'm really surprised that so few outside of North America have
participated - it would be nice to hear from more of you elsewhere in
the world.
To be honest with you, the number of people speaking up on behalf of
hormesis surprises me, but this could be due to self-selection (i.e.
there might be a tendency to speak up on behalf of a hypothesis that you
feel to be under attack than on behalf of one that seems fairly solid)
Anyhow - keep logging in (only once per customer!), and we'll keep
updating you.
