Would you let such an accusation pass?
In fairness, Keith, while I disagree with you on just about everything else in this thread, I would have to answer no to that.
For the record, I think that one can be treading a fine line in a thread like that other one but I felt you were on the right side of that line.
Personally, I think if there is a statistical anomaly, it should be investigated although in this case, my personal feeling is that more detailed analysis to confirm or reject the initial finding was required.
As such I might be inclined to find you guilty of jumping on the side of one interpretation rather quickly and heavily but racist, I for one do not think so.
