That's an entirely defensible impression, but it's also actually false in practice (demonstrably so when you see us at workshops or larger events). Correcting the impression (which again you're justified in having) is a separate issue, but I consider the core complaint to be long-since solved.

I'm not sure what you mean and I'm not sure that I'd let a LWer falsify my hypothesis. There are clear systemic biases LWers have which are relatively apparent to outsiders. Ultimately I am not willing to pay CFAR to validate my claims and there are biases which emerge from people who are involved in CFAR whether as employees or people who take the courses (sunk cost as well as others).

I can imagine that you might have hesitated to list specifics to avoid controversy or mud-slinging, but I personally would appreciate concrete examples, as it's basically my job to find the holes you're talking about and try to start patching them.
