Neither seems to me to be a very satisfactory answer.
No, as I just showed, you take EVERYTHING into account and for the love of god, use common sense.
If you're investigating a crime with 6 witnesses and 5 of the witnesses have similar stories while the 6th witness doesn't...

And for the record, I'm not saying that Adjusted Stats is always that "6th witness".
