Michael, 

My understanding is that people respond to the original query directly (so
as to not completely overload emails). Then, others who are interested in
the answers can contact the original person who sent the query for the
collection of responses. I have done this in the past. Sometimes, if there
are many useful responses, all of them can be collected in one word doc and
quickly disseminated. 

It seems that if it is a general query of interest to most then it should be
kept in the listserv, and if it is a specialized query then it could move
off the listserv.

Speaking of which, Michael - I would be interested in the responses to your
query if possible.

Best, SB

Thanks to everyone who responded to my request for sample SNA instruments. A

question: Are users of Socnet requested to make responses to ALL of Socnet 
or only to the individual who sent the query? I had thought the former (so 
that all people could benefit from the response).
