Hayes Theorem and policing

Can someone calculate the chance of a free book being voted hot because it is free?

splender may understand (and is excluded from above XD) but does everyone else really need a book on this topic. If yes, my admiration for hotukdeals members is immense

This Theorem could be used to solve whether or not Boz's book deals are hotter than others' ebook deals and whether there is big enough gap to lead to questions : When a deal is free, it is voted hot, but does this mean deal is hot because it is free? What's the probability a deal is hot given that it is free? What's the probability a deal is hot given that it is free and posted by Boz?

Edited by:"splender" 1st Aug 2017I thought others might enjoy it or find it useful.

But what if Boz is a false-positive? Would it not skew the results?

Meh.

confidence increases with further theorems and analyses

lol pmsl, wonder what the probability of that idiot buying the book "by mistake" is.
