73% from a sample size of 40 people out of a population of 22,449 has a maximum of +/- 15% margin of error, given 95% confidence level.
Math need not conform to common sense. It conforms to mathematical reasoning. If you don't have it, you cannot disprove a mathematical argument.

This is my favorite. That I am a bogeyman for wanting a scoring system where you cannot farm to get to the top. That this is somehow selfish and I'm the only one who wants this or will benefit.
Ever check out Sugs and Bugs? There are tons of people and mods working together to solve this problem. And there are plenty of other ways to do it than by restricting maps and game types between unskilled vs skilled players. I said the whole time that this was just a bandaid to a failed scoring system anyway.
I am actively contributing to many different sugs and bugs. I currently advocate another method but I'm afraid to mention it for fear of drawing out trolls from under their bridges, so I'll let it be.
In short, find something different to disagree with me about because I'm not beholden to any one solution. There are many possible ways to solve the problem.
