[B-Greek] GRONT score website

One has to draw a distinction between statistical accuracy and statistical 
precision.  GRONT scores are not particularly accurate, but they are very 
precise, and as Mike says, are becoming even more so as the sample sizes 
continue to increase.

This is very true!  I should add some text on the site to make it
clear that these are highly subjective numbers. I have faith in the
consensus of opinion -- maybe that is misplaced -- so I trust that as
more contributors contribute contributions to the database, the scores
will be more meaningful.  If not then I can rest confidently in the
fact that I'm adding more noise to the WWW. :-)
