Dear d_labes,

» adjust="eat.my.shorts" is outstanding because this "method" isn't implemented but transferred via "..." and thus doesn't underlay any error checks. To react on this undesirable feature the programmer decided to set adjust= in such cases to adjust="bonferroni". Reasonable. Or?
» This behavior is described in the man page of lsmeans/pairs or summary.emmGrid.

Thanks for the explanation; I had no idea R worked this way.
And you are exactly right the options are listed in the emmeans documentation (added value for me: it seems I must kiss the lsmeans package goodbye and install emmeans in stead).

Whether or not "eat.my.shorts" should result in "bonferroni" or the default "tukey" or something else is probably a matter of personal taste. I don't think I have a qualified opinion on that aspect and it is not a crucial matter at all for me and probably for anyone on the planet. :-D

I am just very delighted I got an answer to exactly the questions that baffled me. Thanks for the help.:-):-):ok::ok: Muchas gracias.

I could be wrong, but...

Best regards,
ElMaestro

R's base package has 274 reserved words and operators, along with 1761 functions. I can use 18 of them (about 14 of them properly). I believe this makes me the Donald Trump of programming.
