Rhelp is a plain text list. It is specifically for help with R coding 
difficulties, and it is specifically NOT to advice about chosing 
analysis plans. You question raises serious analysis issues regarding 
multiple comparisons and distributional assumption which I believe are 
still the subject of research. A more welcoming venue might be the 
BioConductor mailing list or CrossValitdated.com.
