@robustgar @rlmcelreath And it works for Bayes as well! "we can think of a ... Bayesian 'credible interval' as a compatibility interval showing effect sizes most compatible with the data, under the model and prior distribution used to compute the interval." https://t.co/VNayXZikC9
@GWeindel @robustgar @rlmcelreath "Stating that ... the interval 'measures uncertainty' by indicating the range of possible effect sizes (as opposed to compatible effect sizes, given the model), makes the compatibility interval into an overconfidence interval." https://t.co/VNayXZikC9

@Neuro_Skeptic I think that's extremely counterproductive. Everything should be published in some form even and especially if the results are boring and will not be cited because they were shown several times before. https://t.co/fqxaaxqFdh
