Richard,

I am not making such general claims. I gave the numbers that appear from my survey. These numbers do indicate that hobbyist are an important market.

I worked as a statistician for 10 years. Maybe not as long as you, but enough to know what I'm doing.

I wanted to give my opinion and I did. Now I am out of this discussion.
