This will be wearying familiar to many, but I have to support Maarten here. Please remember that Statalist is a discussion list, not a help line. A help line defines an obligation to try to answer and to be moderately deferential. A discussion list means that people can just ignore your question. So you need to charm people into wanting to answer your question. Pitching your question at a very small number of people who you presume to be totally familiar with a specific small literature and your precise problem is sometimes difficult to avoid, but it is best to try to reduce that by giving information that might also interest and instruct other people. There are actually two incomplete references here, the other to a question in 2005. Say someone wants to look at it in the archives. Now they have to do a search. Much better to give a URL so they can go straight there! Statalist is not just a way of getting answers to personal questions in public. Making your question more interesting and informative can help others and increase your chance of getting a good answer, or even any answer.
