<<But, if we assume that small electrets and then larger electrets are
fundamentally more immune because of their design, its inconsistent
with the fact that much larger, non-electrets tend to become just as
immune, if not more. >>

My own experience with large diaphragm mics & moisture induced noise
issues was the discovery that the condensation from a vocalist's
breath was causing pops in a Neumann U87. We placed the mic about a
foot above a bare 100 watt light bulb to dry it out & then carried on,
with a foam windscreen in place.
