comment Does the average web user know about Boolean algebra?
Yes its quite heavy going: however it covers experimental evidence that people aren't good at 'formal logic' which of course is what boolean is all about.

comment How can I get people not to put trash in recycling bins?
There's also a 'compliance' effect which you can demonstrate experimentally: if people can see that other people have contaminated a container - then they are more likely to further contaminate it.

comment Should I avoid using “abort” in favor of its synonyms?
That's a good point: aborting is the act of stopping something which is already in progress (although you could obviously just 'stop' the mission, but it doesn't sound as dramatic and technical).

comment Does dark colour affect user's trust?
Given that the site shown is selling fencing equipment (ie swords), it's possible that "a little bit aggressive" was the desired intention...

comment Is the icon for telephone outdated?
Android also uses a handset icon. And offices still have conventional corded handsets so I think the traditional phone will be with us a while longer.
