when I posted my message, 25 of 48 messages visible in my newsreader
were Prothon-related. that's a lot of noise, for all those who read comp.
lang.python because they're interested in Python.

if you're serious about doing user research among Python users, you can do a
lot better than posting sporadic questions to a newsgroup. only a small number
of all Python users reads comp.lang.python; only a small number of those that
read the newsgroup posts to it, and only a small number of those that posts are
contributing to your threads. you can get a lot better results and generate a lot
less noise by doing a web-based questionaire, and post a single invitation here
and in other forums where Pythoneers gather.

strangely enough, I don't see any top Pythoneers contributing to the Prothon
threads. who are they?
