well, as you've shown an interest in the recipient of the sarcastic jabs, here's the source (in context) of the quote:

Yes, I admire TIA's enthusiasm too, but I do wish his assertions weren't billed as FACTS.

Statistical inferences aren't facts at the best of times, and bad statistical inferences masquerading as facts are worse.

But the dedication and diligence I can only admire. And the cause in which they have been exercised.


to TIA.

On edit: I should make clear, in case it isn't, that I disagree with virtually all TIA's inferences....
