Warnock's Dilemma

Postby Kay » Fri 7 Jan 2011 18:19 GMT

Just a quick trivia question for you. Have you heard of Warnock's Dilemma and do you know what it is?

No cheating now! :twisted:

(I happened to come across it while I was looking for something else. I'd never heard of it before.)

Nor me, but an interesting way of looking at a lack of responses.

To me, the name "Warnock" brings to mind only one person. But he's a football manager, so I'll avoid posting about him...

...which would have been a neat illustration of one of the Dilemma cases, if I hadn't just written this.

If I recollect correctly think it is about not getting replies to postings or something like that?

Now I'll go and Yahoo it!
