Actually, they are. Often presented as if they were a different kind of data, to support conclusions they don’t, but they are absolutely, incontrovertibly, data.Anecdotes aren't data.
And in this case, where I was describing my own experience (in contrast to another poster’s anecdotal description of their experience) they are in fact data.
Anyway, have a cookie for mis-applying a false cliché.
That's a bizarre assertion.
Yeah, that would be a first on the forums: two different people using a word differently.
