Really great post. Thanks for walking through that. I run into this type of thing quite often when I work with my firm's marketing department. Their analysis often sets off my "faction sniffer" but sometimes it takes some real thinking to really pin point what the errors are.

I really appreciate the thoughtful and more statistical nature of this post. Well done.
