And Mojo believes a better method could be determined, which may or may not be true. And for him to prove his point may require him to collect statistics that are unavailable to him, which doesn't mean he should accept NeatoMan's view. Thus there was never going to be a perfect conclusion to this debate, which is good because that is how progress is made.
DeviouslyCursed: So if it is the case that good evidence has been presented and confirmed by others, yes it's true Mojo doesn't have to accept it. But if he doesn't, it is not just his opinion, he is wrong. A person is welcome to be wrong all he wants. Look at SimplySimple, he absolutely loves being wrong. He loves being wrong so much he'll contradict himself in the same paragraph. If Mojo wants to say there is an issue with the data or with the conclusions, he needs to point out the issue specifically. If he thinks the data is wrong, he needs to present data that is correct. If he does neither, he is just wrong. That's the way empirical data and evidence works. That is the way science works. That is the way the world works (the rational portions of it, anyway). We go with the best currently available data and information available. And currently that is Neato and company's pooled data.
