I agree with the absurdity of your numbers. While they may not be exact, they are probably
accurate in proportion -- I'm not just talking Myth Users though. If EVERYONE cancelled for a month..
wow - that would send a message.

But you're right that the amount that "care" is infinitesimal to the number that just don't know
or don't care.

And that's where it gets disappointing.
