Corrections Department

Two corrections worth noting from last week's post on the Washington state elections:

First, the paragraph I cited from the study by Carla at Preemptive Karma and Torrid Joe at Also Also indicating a higher rate of error in Spokane County was incorrect: Here is their correction. It's worth noting, though, that even though this particular piece of evidence was off, the thrust of their findings -- which was that the rate of error rises exponentially with population -- remains rock-solid.

Second, I incorrectly reported that both Carla and TJ had been banned from Sound Politics by Stefan Sharkansky, but Carla has never been banned there. I also reported that links to their sites had been banned, but that appears to be at least partly incorrect; I've spoken to three different people who said their links to Also Also were rejected in SP's comments, but if that policy was in place at one time, it seems to have been lifted; Sharkansky himself has linked to them in his response, and I've also been able to link to Also Also in SP's comments.

More commentary on this may be forthcoming.
