Agreed. Bar charts with proper spacing add information about frequency. After the Newtown shootings, I did this chart showing the twelve deadliest shootings and this one with 62 shootings for the last 30 years because I could not find them. Everything had equal spacing, implied or explicit, but the discussion was about frequency.
