A collection of anecdotal information. Similar to data, a collection of factual information.

The plural of anecdote is not data, it is dota. Pronounced with a long "O" sound like go or no.

Collection of stories, understanding, impressions, ideas that lead one to have a belief of what the facts will be.

Information gathered from many internet sources giving numbers/figures/measurements that are similar for a given item, yet not recognized by the manufacturer of that item.

Information that can be used to estimate, or gives an impression of a trend, but is not factual data.
"Every one says that is a good place to get a 5 dollar meal." That is anecdotal information. Receipts from several meals is data. Many people saying they got a meal for about five dollars is Dota about the price of a meal there.

The manufacturer says that powder is not recommended for reloading that cartridge. Many posters on the internet are using a given amount of powder to reload that cartridge. Assembling all the information people post is Dota, not data.

the gayest game in the whole world. i mean guys play it so they think they can impress girls but in reality girls think theyre dorks. and mostly if you play dota, its either youre a nerd or a guy who thinks he's a player. guys think this game makes them look cool but playing counter strike makes guys look cooler in reality.
nerd: yes! triple kill! --*started speaking in nerdish*
nerd 2: *nerd language*
girl: omg they suck ass, i thought he was hot but then he started playing this DOTA shit it just turns me off.
girl 2: i know right, lets just look for some guys who can play on guitar hero or counter strike.
