Non rigorous answer: less than a dozen I believe.

You naturally have to differentiate between "genuine" non-responders
which didn't respond because they didn't know (spam filter, invalid
e-mail address, e-mail account no longer in use and so on)  and
decliners that didn't accept the CTs for tactical or other reasons. As
far as possible we avoided wasting time going after the later group and
they are not included in my numbers (a couple slipped through the cracks
but in general they didn't change their position).
