Comment Fight the good fight! (Score 1) 521

It is difficult to battle this problem when so many others don't seem to understand or care about it, but I say: Fight the good fight! I disagree with your use of the term "data mining", though. "Data mining" is a sophisticated statistical analysis of data (see, for instance: http://matlabdatamining.blogspot.com/), whereas what I think you're talking about is "data snooping" or "data theft".

Statistics means never having to say you're certain.
