The graph shows a correlation that the data actually possesses.

You could use this to form a hypothesis that socialists are (with exceptions) more likely to be libertarian, while authoritarians prefer capitalism, indicating that the one-dimensional system might not be completely flawed.

But it's more likely that the test causes this bias (not a bias in a direction, but along a particular regression). You can't map viewpoints easily...

So did Salmon, and he started it. Thanks for the heads up, I'm entering the data now.

Since it is becoming very jumbled, I added a feature to display only a single community or the history of a single member.

Or a list thereof.

Why am I in the third quadrant? I'm (2.00, 2.92).

Dinti: I mistakenly saw a negative sign in front of both coordinates, since they're pretty much everywhere else.

Also, how the hell have we managed to coexist so far, you fascist? :P

I like graphs of random statistical data. :) Aran, are your tool and data sets publically available?

For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.

Dude, you're the one who's so far in the third quadrant that you're almost off the scale, and yet I'm the one who has problems coexisting?

Meh. I guess we're all easier to coexist with each other when we don't have enough time to make long posts. Maybe there's a lesson to learn there.

When I get into power, I shall institute a spoken word limit. Every person would have a limit on how many words they can say on a given day (extroverts will, of course, be able to buy talk credits from introverts). Language will be limited to what is really important, like "cheque's in mail", "large double-double", and "get beer now". Philosophical differences will disappear, as people would quite literally not want to waste their breath.

It would also solve people talking in theatres, too.

I think you could tighten those up even more.

"Paypal'd you."
"Beer me!"
"Coffee! Stat!"

I'll sell you some of my talk credits, you verbose Canuck!

Argh. I don't like the idea of talk credits, mainly because my girlfriend and I would have to buy so many for every conversation we have that we would deplete your stingy regime of speech. ;)

How did I pwn everyone in authoritarianism, by the way? Does that put me at the top of the Tyrant Watch List? Other than possibly Dintiradan...

But the plane is purely relative. (0, 0) is an arbitrary position, and far less expressive than the distance two points have on the plain.

And compared with the forum, I'm two sigmas out in one direction, while you're three sigmas in the other. :P
