Re: (misleading stats)
You're comparing a paragraph hidden in a 233 page document, which we can call a surprise needle in a haystack, to axis that are extremely clear. The fact that the 1st comment is about the axis shows just that, it is not hidden.
If the axis both went from 0% to 100% it would virtually show no information, that would be a useless graph.
You sound like the type of person who needs a warning on a box of razor blades: "Do not swallow, external use only", to prevent you from doing just that.
I can agree with the comment to have them at the same scale.
