That IS the correct way to do things, but it involves work on behalf of the reader, and work that many are unwilling to even learn to understand what they need to do to interpret the results properly.

The issue that I am attempting to confront here is that of reader laziness. As in a approach of "Okay, so all this technical stuff just flew over your head? That's cool. If there's one graph which you should read, try to understand, and take away with you as an approximated summary of the results seen, it would be this graph".
