    Abstract

    Robust methods for description and inference about location that are based on down weighting extreme values have very little to offer empirical researchers. Problems of non-normality and heterogeneity are serious, but can be better handled by other sophisticated modern methods. These include exploratory uses of robust methods as an essential and indispensable part of any data analysis. Democracy for data: all points are equal - none are more equal than others.
