    All the more reason to provide raw data, so others can advise
    them where they may be making errors. So they can learn.

    This is not a professional scientific or educational institution.
    I am aware of raw data being kept internal in such situations,
    and the reasons for doing so in those institutions frankly do not
    apply in this context.
    Personally, I'd love to have someone more knowledgeable than I
    to tell me where I'm goofing in my processing. It's how I learn.
    Is not the purpose of this forum to share information and to
    learn from others' experiences? How do we do that by keeping
    things secret? It only hurts the contributor.
    In the end, it's up to Ted to decide what is required and what is
    not. Even if it is decided that raw data is not required, doing
    so voluntarily lends credence to the contributor for all the reasons
    I listed, ESPECIALLY the first one.
