It defeats your stated object..your opening post was only "readable" ( because of using terms specific to your country and culture ) by those members who live in North America ..unless we went off site to find out what your references meant..sending us off site again in your post in reply to me ..
Stated object has been achieved... discussing the specifics of each of these tests within the limits of WW would have occupied immense time... whereas mentioning the subject, providing some input into possible value, did send those interested to more capable sites on the subject and probably in their own language if English is not native.
And answering "lower is better" might not be appropriate for some topics/subjects. Again, this thread has always been about writing to a targeted audience.
As for losing the audience here... seems to be fairly active. :)
