To be honest, I almost skipped your thread because it started off sounding like spam. But then I got to the statement at the end. There is nothing wrong with the statement. But rather than ramble off a bunch of stats, I will direct you to this paper written by NASA in 2000: http://standards.nasa.gov/released/1001/1001_12.pdf

Hope this helps.
