Mixed
- I tried my best at further analysis to separate Usenet-based reader responses from Web-based ones. I wasn't entirely successful, but I think the results are adequate. As you see, I had to add a "Mixed" category, for readers that seem to be on equal footings in the two types of forums.
Comparisons: Usenet and Web, Usenet and Mixed, Mixed and Web
