Dear HUMOR list members:

Once a week the HUMOR-P (posters) receive a HUMOR traffic report
along with suggestions and comments. This week's report is going
to the entire list.

Contributions continue at a moderate rate (13.1 average, range of
7-21 articles-per-day). This is the time of year when a large
number of our subscribers lose their college accounts for the
summer months (northern hemisphere). We continue to have an
international audience with 57 countries identified by our
listserver. Membership on our self-selected posters' list is
climbing toward 500 (only 23 countries represented on that list).

Also in this report: a list countries represented on HUMOR and a
brief version of HUMOR's goals and rules.
