Bar plots are not the optimal way to represent data

Nice paper, and thanks for submitting a preprint.

I have a suggestion about the use of bar plots, that hide information about the data distribution.

Below some suggestions (with code) on valid alternatives.

This representation hides data and confounds the interpretation of the results. See here for some examples

plus the code described here
