Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

A recent student survey in the UK, published today, found that in the UK science and engineering students spent on average 35 hours a week studying (that makes 133 hours drinking in bars and clubs).
Arts students (media studies, medieval church knitting studies, history of rap groups 1950-200 studies etc) spent on average 20 hours per week.
15,000 students were questioned in one of the largest such surveys ever done.
How about this site doing a world-wide study on science and engineering study hours per week? If each science student asked 20 colleagues how many hours they spent studying per week, that would reach quite a large statistical sample.

That's a good idea. You should be able to create a poll of your own from your posting. It might be a good idea to start a new thread in the Education forum area. If you create the poll and provide a little text description of your goal, I'll link to it as the next Forum Poll on the RF Cafe homepage.
