Is there an easy way to speak with 4chan staff? What if I have something I want to contribute to 4chan that I don't think will get seen on /qa/?

The answers you seek lie within...

I made a script to calculate probability of getting the same distribution of 1st numbers from each candidate's votes by Benford's law.

results:
sigma DonaldTrump JoeBiden
all::Log -0.59 -0.37
5states::Log -0.03 3.76 // Biden is highly frauded, probability of 1/12500.
2states::Log -0.7 0.46
15swings::Log -2.64 0.5

From all sates: Both votes obey Benford's law appropriately.
From 5 states(GA,NC,PA,NV,AZ): Trump is clean, but Biden is highly frauded. 3.76 means probability of 1/12500.
From 2 states(MI,WI): There is too big errors to determine if there is fraud or not.
From 15 states(AZ,CO,FL,GA,IA,MI,MN,NV,NH,NC,OH,PA,TX,VA,WI): Both votes obey Benford's law.
Selection of 5 or 2 states were got from the article, selection of 15 states was got from wikipedia.

Benford's law is not expected to apply when the underlying population distribution does not span enough orders of magnitude.

Try calculating Benford errors for the *populations* of the counties in question and see what you get.
>>
>>3653300
> population
If this is not correct for this case, please teach correct word for this. I used a dictionary to find "mother groups" in my language of mathematical area.


> when the underlying population distribution does not span enough orders of magnitude.
That is a myth from political mathematicians. Benford's law uses 'FOLDED" distribution of populations, therefore even a separated(hopped) distribution fills Benford's law perfectly. For example.

A(n) = A(n-1) * 10^(n/1000) (n=0,1,...,999, 100000,100001,...,100999)
Note: next n of 1000 is 100000

A(n) is hopped from 10 to 10^100, but this fills Benford's law perfectly.

B(n) = A(n-1) * 10^(n/1000) (n=0,1,...,499, 100500,100501,...,100999)
Note: next n of 499 is 100500

>>3653352
Humm, is 'mother group" better for you?


>>3653347
I'll add some explanations.
Benford's law needs that "mother group" is composed of geometric sequence when it is FOLDED. --- (A)

> when the underlying population distribution does not span enough orders of magnitude. --- (B)
When "mother group" spans some orders of magnitudes widely, the "mother group" fills (A) generally. Therefore (B) shall be a criteria of Benford's law WITHOUT ANY INVESTIGATION about distribution of "population". But (B) is not a requirement.

I've been on and off this website since 2009, and I must say that the last year has been the absolute worst. I never felt like I'm losing braincells before, but now it physically hurts. Every discussion is pretty much "Wojak vs cope vs seethe vs dilate", it has never been this fucking bad.

There is zero moderation effort going to improving the site. Only in enforcing rules that clearly need to be update to account for the new faggotry.
