My very small contribution to this thread was intended as a joke, but
was also intended to express some surprise at the idea of omitting
coefficients from your report. Tony fills that idea out.

In all this thread, I'm becoming a bit worried about the scientific
validity of what is being proposed.  If you want the regression omitting
the variables, that is, of course, trivial.  If you don't want to report
coefficients in a publication, that seems to lead to the level of
misleading your readers - so it would be crucial to note that you have
suppressed some coefficients.  Otherwise, people might assume those
variables were not included in the regression at all!  Be very careful
about this

sorry if i made myself not clear, but i only want to omit SOME of the
regressor, not the whole table!
