I see where the linked question indeed has some relevance to skepticism-- statistics are a huge part of the research from which we derive our conclusions about reality. However, as I mentioned in the comments on that question, I think it more closely fits in the scope of stats.SE. Either that, or this question is possibly too localized for skeptics.SE, due to its mathematically esoteric nature.
Is this indeed the case? Should we consider this question and others like it on- or off-topic?
Edit: I'm trying to think of other examples of mathematical topics which may be relevant to skepticism. The only one which comes to my mind is the Birthday Problem, which really only is relevant because it can be used as a demonstration of the importance of thorough analysis of a claim (the seemingly obvious answer to the problem is incorrect). And still yet, I think it too fits better in stats.SE.
