  1. Thanks – just found this (via Andrew Gelman’s blog). I make many of these points to clinicians (and statisticians) that I work with on a regular basis, so it’s great to have somewhere else that I can point them, if only so they can see that it isn’t just me that thinks these things!

    1. Thanks! A lot of points like this come up in things like journal clubs that I’m involved with, but they’re never written down, I think both because it’s time-consuming, and also because it’s hard to criticize papers publicly (i.e. outside something like a journal club) without seeming mean-spirited.
