You're on the wrong forum, buddy. ABX tests are infallible....
Infallible?? Well, if you say so. I stand corrected.
They are, and they are reproducible. And they are the most scientific way of proving such a statement.

One is entitled to his opinion, but once he decides to share it, it must be backed up by evidence.

I don't have a real firm grasp of statistics, but I remember hearing that there's a tradeoff between the possibility of type I errors and the possibility of type II errors. In other words, I thought there was a tradeoff between false positives and false negatives.

If it's true, how does the double-blind ABX method account for this? Or is that unnecessary?

Thank you in advance. smile.gif
