It most certainly can be shown to be both! Research results, even from good studies, aren't always consistent. That's just the way of research. Now, the truth (or non-truth) of the bystander effect really can't be both and we mere mortals can never be 100% sure which it really is. — Unsigned, by: 2601:285:8380:1AC8:F077:BE53:32CC:B46E / talk

You could have inferred from my edit to the page that I already knew that, and you could have assisted me in correcting the article, instead of lecturing me on my carefree use of language on the talk page. The article originally gave the impression it was certain that people would stand and do nothing, and only weakly asserted the dissenting article. Demoncard (talk) 03:55, 3 November 2020 (UTC)
