    thanks for sharing, it’s frustrating how easily “can’t reject a null hypothesis for a specific measure of efficacy” gets turned into “proof that the drug is ineffective for all populations” (of course similar fallacies happen too frequently when the null is rejected as well)

    Great idea, thanks.
