Please don't post like this.

Apart from a minor cultural issue of assuming that Statalist members
share your time zone, you are asked not to use Statalist to elicit
private replies. I know you mentioned this as an  option, but that is
not even in your own interests, as you are now likely to get emails of
the form "Did you get anything useful sent to you directly?"

The point is explicit at
http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/resources/statalist-faq/#others

"Do not request private replies unless you are offering payment The
Statalist convention is that you reply to the list not to the poster.
Please do not request a direct personal reply unless the question
refers to information about (for example) a job or paid consultancy.
Otherwise, you will bother the list with your question, but the list
does not benefit from any answers. If people reply directly to you,
consider posting a summary to the list."
