: a figure at a board, pointing at two bars. "Yes, I love responding to surveys": 99.2%, "No, I toss them in a bin": 0.2%
Figure says: "we received 500 responses and found that people love responding to surveys."
Image is titled "Sampling bias".

@kingu_platypus_gidora This effect is also in place if you appoint a white cishet male professor as the anti-discrimination commissary. Not a single discriminated person will talk to him, so "our commissary did not report any discriminations! Everything is fine!" (yes, I am looking at you #PotsdamUniversity )

As useless as #mastodonsurveys are : users are not representative of the average population. My sons and their grandparents don't even know about #mastodon and have no concept of digital #privacy
