That said, it'd be more interesting to see correlations between these measurements.
There were several questions about mental health (medically diagnosed pathologies, suspected pathologies, ...).
The sex ratio was around 10 to 1.
All girls reported moderate to severe mental issues, whereas only 1 dude in 10 did.
I'd take that poll with a grain of salt, and I sincerely doubt that 'femanons' are 10x more likely to be suffering from moderate to severe mental illness.
The methodology is of course deeply flawed. Even though the anonymity of the poll allows people to report such issues without guilt (or even with pride), it also encourages trolling.
I didn't start that poll, I just happened to pass by while it was being held. I read around 150 answers. My memory isn't perfect, but here is what I remember. None of the 15 females reported a normal mental health or even mild troubles. Around the same number of males reported serious mental issues (things like bipolar disorder, borderline personality, multiple phobias, panic attacks, major depression, schizophrenia, hospitalization in mental health institutes for whatever reason).
I'm not sure why girls would be culturally more inclined to report severe mental illness (even though, from my clinical experience, I wouldn't be surprised if they had a tendency to report mild mental troubles more easily). Is this bias documented somewhere? Also, even if such a bias exists, it wouldn't explain such a wide difference.
Assuming that the poll was not massively rigged by trolls, and with only 66% of females with mental issues, the P-value of Fisher's exact test is under 0.001.
120 15 | 135
5 10 | 15
125 25 | 150
The probability of getting a sample with 66% of the females in good mental health (keeping the rate in males identical) when there is no gender difference regarding mental health in the population is around 0.03.
This isn't to say it isn't still bullshit. I know two women with OCD diagnoses, but neither present typical symptoms. One is the most foul-smelling slob I know, the complete opposite of your typical OCD person. The other seems relatively normal.
Your client has issued a malformed or illegal request.
The parameter 'chs=345x1000' specifies a chart with
345000 pixels, which exceeds the maximum size of
EDIT: Actually, that chart is incomplete since the sheer number of items renders off of the image area. Awesome.
The culture isn't genuinely hateful, they're just trying to get a rise out of people. Besides, 'fag' is an affectionate term to a /b/tard...
Case in point: at the bottom of the page the survey author says to contact him at "firstname.lastname@example.org" :-)
Methinks we need an HN survey to see what the 4chan readership rate is...
I bet 4chan, Reddit, and HN all hitting a Google Doc at once probably wasn't expected.
However, given the propensity of 4channers to troll, I'm sure the confidence levels on all these answers must necessarily be very low.
4chan is a cesspool, and it is not representative of youth or any interesting demographic.
I can only imaging what a teenager is able to amass these days with TB hard drives and what others might think when they go through it. From a security perspective if [they] suspect that [you] have a porn collection would it be prudent to keep a small and neutral porn collection somewhere easily found on their system? With the percentage being so high they (parents) might keep looking until they find something.
If your friends are very religious or something I can understand why you'd want to spend extra effort to hide stuff. But even then if they don't want to know they shouldn't be opening a folder called "porn".
Control-f for "I'm bisexual"
And then you have self-identifiers. Between filesharing, underage drinking, speeding, and pot, you're going to have a hard time finding anyone between 18 and 30 who hasn't committed at least one crime, even if unconvicted.
I'm also wondering what the Drug User questions looks for. People who are taking illegal substances or people who are taking prescribed medication. It sure is interesting to compare that percentage to the criminal question.
There are criminal penalties for copyright infringement. You'd have to really piss off the judge and prosecutor to get charged with it for private piracy, but it's technically a criminal issue.
Also, criminal and civil are not mutually exclusive. They can be both.
I may have been mislead by the fact that in my language (French) there's a very fine distinction between a crime (un crime) and an offence ("un délit"), in that the former carries a sense of gravity, while the later is just an infraction.
Anyway, save yourself the trouble, since the answer is "yes." Everyone in the US is a criminal. Have you ever gone over the speed limit? Did you report every internet purchase on your taxes last year? Everyone breaks the law every day.
Argentina also stands out.
channers cannot resist gaming these online surveys/contests, even if its their own.
Remember the demographic, which is mostly 14-23 year olds. Definitions of things aren't necessarily always correct in that area. I'd expect a lot of the self-identifying transsexuals to be more bi-sexual than legally defined transsexuals.
 Specifically, confused individuals who are unsure of what it actually means to be gay or bisexual that do have feelings that aren't aligned with the straight public. Just because a guy likes other guys, for example, doesn't mean he's actually feminine, despite feeling feminine.
