Is there compelling data in "Popular Favorites"?

I really like perusing ask.mefi on the "popular favorites" tab. I usually see what's on the front page and then if I have time use "favorites" to go a bit deeper and see what I've missed over the last day or so. What I find amusing is when there is a question with maybe a couple answers but a huge amount of favorites. What that says to me is that here's a question that a lot of people are interested in but not many people know of a good answer. And I feel like there's compelling data there... but what is it? Is there any compelling social data that can come out of there? And will one of you smart people pull it out and present it to the rest of us? That's my pony!
