Please send me a list of those 6 and I will attempt to contact them. As for why someone wouldn't respond to a PM, when I joined ClubRSX however many years ago I didn't realize I had a PM until about a year after it was sent...just never noticed. Frankly I'd keep them in the list...the more the merrier.
I like to think of the list as "confirmed" failures, or at least as close to confirmed as you can get when dealing with people reporting this stuff on a forum. For example, on the original list, there was a guy on there who had an 04 WRX with a spun bearing. I only discovered that because he happened to actually respond to my PM. If the VIN/build date are given, you can at least weed out these types of mistakes.
I'll go ahead and add the 6 back in as a footnote to the main list, but not counting them in the total. Feel free to see if you can get a hold of them.
