Please, please, please; restrict your testing to the test group. That's what it's there for.

TIA for your cooperation.

No, I think its because the wingnut faction would complain if he tested 666.

To end on a slightly more serious note: the DJI has ended today with just as many 52-week new highs (16) as new lows.

If only there was a pithy saying about statistics that applied to this.

Of course there is a pithy saying which applies, but how do you know if it's right or wrong?

If you're only testing 1, 2 and 3, you're going to get a misleading result, because the real problems occur at 4, 8 and 9.

If you have a comment about spelling, typos, or format errors, please e-mail the poster directly rather than posting a comment.

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
