Standard of evidence

    From Consumerium development wiki R&D Wiki

    A standard of evidence is a pre-determined filter on what will be heard or not heard in a due process or other rigorous process. For instance in science anecdotal evidence has no status, while in court it does, but hearsay has no status.

    Disinfopedia studies this issue more carefully than most wikis and so its article provides a better overview than anywhere else in the GFDL text corpus.
