  1. Interesting!

    As someone who spends a lot of time in visualization and how it can go awry, I find your use of positive and negative interesting. Have you thought about switching axes? If you portray the values as horizontal bars, I think you could make much more neutral graphs, with a bonus of showing how far “left” or “right” a judge is.

    Hi Adam,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I actually had never thought about switching the axes, but it makes sense.
