I don't think that that is a good idea. I like to keep answering
questions on Stata out of the personal sphere. I am no consultant and I
have no intention to be one, but if I have some time to spare I am
willing give my 5 cents worth. I find that by responding on the list
instead of personally I keep those two worlds separate.
