Making decisions about the operation of a business ("product decisions") based on stories, as opposed to based on data.
Anecdotal evidence is not necessarily reliable. If you ask a group of engineers they will probably relate to you some of the most recent, or most interesting, stories about your product or how they have dealt with customers and their issues.
Those are anecdotes. They may not be the actual best basis for deciding what product changes to introduce.
