Probably should put "statistian" in quotes here because most of these people use statistics I would guess but have terminal degrees in fields other than statistics.

I suspect Jake and Dason will say I should test these differences myself (although given that experts disagree commonly and presumably do this already I am not optimistic about this approach given that I am no expert).

This is a link that reflects, by poster's who's expertise I have no way to access, the differences I often find in text or discussions of statistics on topics. Some say Kruskal Wallis is testing 1) medians 2) means 3) distribution (if ranks are the same effectively).

I have found similar disagreements among academic sites on this topic.
