Thanks for the count on that. I'm sure you're right that re-distributor addresses will be included in most litservs and are likely to be a tiny percent of the total. I toyed with the idea of searching the Internet for the number of times strings like, "statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu" appear for each list with the thought that it would actually seek to measure the amount of redistribution, but it didn't turn out to work very well.
