This is absurd.

R.A. Cantrell asked if anyone had read Hall's history.

Takashi Kozuka reasonably wondered:

>>May I ask why it's important statistic and what the result can tell us?

Mr. Cantrell replied:

>No.

>So far, one  gentleman  in all the world has  answered in the
>affirmative.

Look, I did, though so many years ago I barely remember it.  I know some
prominent Shakespeareans who mostly lurk on this list who have, but they
are no more likely to answer such a question than I was before I was
annoyed by Mr. Cantrell's answer to Takashi.  Mr. Cantrell seems to
believe the answers he gets will be meaningful.  They will not.
