I’ll make one comment::
Propper refers to criticisms of “rigid focus on p values” to justify calling effects “trends” or even “strong trends” when their p values are not significant.  Nonsense!  Statistics keep us honest.  They are objective tests that prevent us from accepting or supporting hypotheses simply because we like that hypothesis.  How often do you see authors calling non-significant effects “trends” when they don’t support the author’s conclusion?
