Shall I just repeat what I’ve already said about your allegation that the exclusion of incorrectly formatted data – which was not done by the actual researcher, it must be emphasised –†is equivalent to cynical cherry-picking in favour of an ulterior motive? Or are you the only one who gets to repeat yourself?

I don’t disagree in principle that one should always endeavour to solve problems at the earliest/proper point, i.e. the experimental design in this case. I was just musing hypothetically. That last word is important, since it’s me who’s twittering away to myself here, rather than the researcher having actually done this or anything like it! Looking back, I do not agree with the filtering suggested by nevermind, which began all of this, but again: That’s different from asking whether one can filter data that were not formatted correctly. Which, again, isn’t something I think can be done reliably – but it was just a hypothetical question about the possibility of putting a Band-Aid on a less than optimally designed test, not prodding something in a direction according to self-interest
