You published data that shows that R=3 is better than R=2.  You proved that R=3
will solve essentially the same number of problems in 42% of the time.  You
didn't make this conclusion, but it is in the data.

If it is in the data, but the conclusion is wrong, then something is wrong with
the data.  If something is wrong with the data, then it can't be used to prove
anything about VR=3, either.
