<p>Wow, you sound really butthurt. Please explain how quoting in detail from textbooks on the definition of test statistics is a non sequitur in a debate on the definition of test statistics. Because you're the one who refuses to respond to this or furnish any supporting evidence. </p>
<p>See how that works? I have evidence. You have nothing.</p>
<p>Or: (my evidence) > (your evidence) = 0. Therefore, a test that you have and are nothing is supported.

Tue, 28 Jan 2020 03:45:44 +0000PoliSci1660331@https://www.poliscirumors.com/<p>Huh. That's weird.</p>
<p>Once I quoted *three* separate textbooks providing clear proof for my claims, the poor stats bros disappeared with no response. Plus, none of them could provide a similar definition from a textbook backing up their case. Just slunk away.</p>
<p>Isn't that weird? Can't figure out what that means.

No apology for getting everything wrong? No acknowledgment that I'm clearly right and they use the sample mean as a test statistic, clearly implying you can do the same with a coefficient? Have some integrity, my man, and admit I'm right.

Wed, 22 Jan 2020 20:01:33 +0000PoliSci1654482@https://www.poliscirumors.com/<p>Still zero response to this simple direct challenge despite extensive complaining, dodging, and lame insults:</p>
<p>Find me a credible source (textbook, rigorous lecture notes, etc.) that clearly defines test statistics in a way that coefficients don't trivially qualify. Note I said *defined*, not a statement about common or desirable properties. I've now provided *three* sources supporting my claim. Three!</p>
<p>Every comment that ignores this challenge will be taken as an admission of defeat. Good luck.

and so on
</p></blockquote>
<p>First is a complete lie. Said from the beginning the sample mean gives you a single realized value but has a theoretical distribution. Keep lying and I'll keep calling you on it.</p>
<p>Second is unambiguously true as a *definition* of test statistics, not as something you ought to do. I've now backed this up with three textbooks and poster has no response.

<p>No one is responding, says the third guy responding in four hours and hoping no one notices he has zero content.
