I don't know, the conservation thing didn't really rile me here, more the misinfo. You just have the reputation to be willing to self correct and that's so rare unfortunately. Minor thing of course, but on Twitter it can start to grate.

I assume the effect of such attitudes has been studied for dolphins or so? Not my area. But it doesn't seem that counterintuitive.. although "hurt" seems a bit strong, I don't think your followers will start finning. Something like his post with a better attitude could _help_?

I don't agree it's just his say so. Finning sunfish as useless animals appears to happen though and being bycatch seems to be a real driver of their vulnerability. Seems like people feeling like they are majestic somewhat smart creatures would change attitudes.

Hm, I don't agree. Seems like a lot of this was misinformation. The imgur post managed to be funny and fascinating with less misinformation, although I agree the death wish thing is stupid. So don't RT that, just correct yourself?

This is spot on, genetic risk predictors of IQ/education are research tools not unbiased measures of lifetime potential. Their use in schools would likely introduce unforseen bias.

I disagree. I follow you for selection but also the fact that you add your critical takes, and I'm bound to see low N studies crop up elsewhere anyway, so for me this would make things easier. I patreon 's newsletter for this, i.e. this saves me time and is worth money.

I don't think anybody wants you to tweet just abstracts (that's what journals would be for if they weren't technologically inept for the most part)! I think your excerpts add a lot of value, most of the time, and could add even more.

To be clear: I was never under the impression these weren't excerpts. There usually ellipses which you don't find in abstracts.

And the N thing: is it really so much to ask? That's why I always have to click through. Your excerpts usually allow me to judge design and theory, but I always have to check for the amount of evidence.

Yes, I get that. But you do add your own no-nonsense take quite often, so I am often surprised when I find that you cover an article which has the exact pathologies (including virality) you cover in other tweets.

But thanks for reacting, you didn't the last time I brought this up, maybe my tone was too harsh because of that. Sorry. I do appreciate 50% of your posts, like I said. And I think we need more "distillers" like yourself.

Still, would be better if you included the Ns and left out the horribly underpowered stuff with overly broad implications. It's puzzling for me how can you can see and nicely communicate problems of social, but ignore same probs in EP.

Yeah, he also has a really bad habit of not applying his critical view to small N evolutionary psychology research. And always leaves out the Ns. Still like the excerpts sometimes though, but it's 50% chance of being misled these days.

The thing about jellyfish, but also the thing about being famously useless (probably in ref to the rant), the thing about floating around, and not being edible? So most of your quote? It also says dissing this animal hampers conservation efforts. Seems worth RTing the correction.

You get what you incentivize. You also get what you don't realize you are accidentally incentivizing, too.

So, how _do_ you think this happens? Other editors just less awesome?

The reviewers they can get, not the ones they need? More seriously, unless you know it's an issue, you won't know who to consult.
