Am I right in not trusting Effective Measure statistics?

It is the best source of information on website statistics and demographics which we have in South Africa. The stats are very accurate, and gives a good comparison of how websites compare.

So the majority of internet users are black females aged 25-29?

I know 100's of people who block EffectiveMeasures. The data is therefore skewed.

Unlikely that a few geeks will have a significant impact on the sample. This survey was about internet users in SA in general and 265 000 is a massive sample.

That's about how many clones enter the competition thread, so in fact it's the same as the number of active myBB members in reality

Majority of internet users visit Facebook and use it for WhatsApp messaging. Both platforms not tracked by EffectiveMeasure. These stats are skewed and only report on sites that implement EM for stats.
