User Registration Processes: Double Opt-in success rates

Can anyone direct me to research on drop out rates for online systems that require a user to click a link in a verification email to complete a registration process? So far the only research I've found is related to email marketing. The system I am working on requires the user to be more actively engaged in the application and therefore I don't think the email research is applicable.

ADMIN: Subject lines (was Re: (no subject))

Hi Gang,

Can I ask that people please be sure to add a subject line to their
message? This is obviously a helpful measure for everyone.

And yes, if you are replying to someone who made a mistake it is better
to add a relevant subject line than to leave the thread without one.

Thank you!

Joe the Plumber as Persona

In the US Presidential debate last night, there was considerable discussion
about "Joe the Plumber". Turns out he's a real person, but nevertheless I
heard him used as a sort of proxy or persona. Anybody else flash on this
too? Is he the right persona to be designing an economic turnaround for?
Other secondary personas to consider? Just wondering what you wise and witty
folks will come up with...
