You’re selectively reading. Anyone is welcome to their opinion. I’ve said that here. I said it in the other comment threads. What we disagree with is facts. This is actually similar to the argument you had where we had actual statisticians telling you that you were doing stats wrong.

Everyone is welcome to opinions. You don’t get to say that professionals are wrong because their expert opinions don’t match with your uninformed ones. And you especially don’t get to do it when the evidence you are presenting yourself actually says the opposite of what you think it does.
