Hamburgering RASSMUSSEN opinion poll data

The bias problems with Rassmussen have been discussed and mocked by the lefty blogosphere for years. This year, after an article in Politico, there seems to be a growing consensus among the MSM punditocracy that unless there are polls by other firms that can confirm Rassmussen's data; you shouldn't use them as your primary source for opinion polling.

Y'all kick ass! Brag on Yourselves!

As a group-wide hug: I'm just curious as to what everyone's own personal favorite post or comment of their own has been. What do you look back on now and think, "right on, go me!"?

Happy Mefi-day to me!

Today just happens to be my one-year Mefi-versary! In honor of this, I thought it might be fun for some of you old timers* to tell me about your favorite thread, post, question or project. MeTa tends to be kinda stuffy -- let's let the light in here and have a little fun, neh? [more inside]

What's the best thing (post, comment, question, answer, song, whatever) you've posted to Metafilter?

I want to know what MetaFilter is thinking.

I'd be interested in seeing where MeFites stand on certain things without all the requisite explanations, caveats, and general schtuff that goes along with the responses to an actual post. That all said, can we have polls? [more inside]

Who are your favorite MeFites, and why?

Who are your favorite MeFites, and why? We all know about (and secretly enjoy) the feuds, the hissy fits, the sniping, but what about those folks whose advice or comments you consistently enjoy? Please give one (1) example for any or all of the following categories, and link to one (1) example of said sterling statement.*

#1 Smartest/most learned
#2 Most interesting/creative/off-the-wall (in a good way)
#3 Most thought-provoking
#4 Funniest

what brought you to non-belief?

There has been a number of religion oriented threads recently. In these threads it becomes apparent that, compared to the population at large, Metafilter has a higher frequency of non-believers. Inspired by this thread* at another website, what brought you to non-belief?

* it starts a little shallow, but more indepth stories come eventually

What are your favorite MeFi taglines?

MetaFilter: Something more than an infantile masturbatory impulse.
wait, maybe Metafilter: No good can come of a thread like this.
perhaps MetaFilter: Flag it and move on...
how about Metafilter: It's a big ball of problems apart from one user with question marks.
I know, Metafilter: This post, it vibrates?
That's it. I give. What are your favorite MeFi taglines?

Do you have a cat?

There are often questions on ask metafilter about animals, but most of the time, the questions are about cats. It seems to me that--among pet owners--most metafilter users that have pets have cats. Is this so?

Polling the membership... is not a good post

Polling the membership to see what they think about a big-media story is not a good post, especially when there are no good links offered in the post, and the subject matter is hot-button, right-to-life kind of stuff. Besides: double-post.

How do you regard the time you spend on MetaFilter?

How do you regard the time you spend on MetaFilter? Is it information time (keeping up with the web; news-gathering); social time (discussing; engaging with others); fun pure and simple; vegetative-time (like watching indifferent TV); time-wasting when having a break from work...or what?
[Apologies if this question is of no interest to anyone but me.]

How do you picture the bona-fide MeFi celebrities?

How do you picture the bona-fide MeFi celebrities? We read from them all the time, but they don't often give clues as to their real selves. If you don't make a meetup, you'll still need a picture of them in your head. So what do you think they're like? I'll leave the choice of celebrity up to you

What do people think about polling the membership?

What do people think about polling the membership? A feature that would allow Matt (or others) to provide questions on popular issues/ideas/songs or whatever and get a sense of what the community thinks. The obvious example is topical stuff, e.g. who will the Metafilter users vote for in the election? This idea could either enhance the community, or divide it. The biggest negative is that statistics are misleading, they can polarize things, and they give people easy examples when they are generalizing, and that sucks. But, it would be fascinating to know how the community stands on a given issue. I still think this is the best community on the internet and the most interesting, and I think many people would like to know how we feel on this or that. If it were to happen in the style of this site, it would be a once every few months kind of thing. A side feature could be to have all discussion on that issue reside on that page (get them off the front).

Threads I wish weren't closed

There's some threads on AxeMe that I find myself wishing weren't closed. I know you've been busy and haven't had much time or possibly inclination to work on AxeMe, Matt, and I think/hope that maybe these threads will return via a sidebar or such...

But in the meantime, I was wondering what #1 and the gang's opinion would be on occasionally reposting questions that might benefit from the occasional update. I'm thinking of the fave reads, fave listens, and desktop threads in particular.

How do you find your MeFi time?

I can usually manage enough spare time to read and comment on a few threads a few times per week.
It occurred to me (while reading this MetaTalk thread) that other members must spend a much larger portion of their time here. Just out of curiosity are these folks unemployed or retired or are they spending a big chunk of their work-day here?
I'd also like to add a broader question: how many threads do other people tend to follow during whatever period they spend on MetaFilter?

What do Mefites do for a living?

What do Mefites do for a living? I know we have just over A Trio Of Librarians, but is there a "most common" choice of career for a Metafilter member, or are most of us unemployed?
I imagine we have a gaggle of programmers & web designers, but are there any welders, boat builders, porn stars, farmers or bassoonists out there? What's the least common profession for a member?
I swear this was discussed once, I couldn’t seem to find it, but maybe it’s time to discuss again?

Who's your MeFi crush?

Okay, there's been some negativity round these parts lately, so let's try this: Is there any MeFiosi upon whom you've developed a sort of (intellectual?) crush? (Potentially lame query, I know, but I figure it'll get some positive feedback going. We've spilled a lot of bytes talking about the people, or personae, we don't like, ad nauseam, so I figure the opposite is worth a shot. So shoot! Free love!)

What percentage of threads do you read?

In this posting, user dhartung mentions that there are dozens of threads that he doesn't even read, after user RobertLoch asks if it's necessary to keep posting on the same old topics. Myself, I probably read around 25% of the total threads, and click on maybe 35% of the links offered-- even if a topic has been done to death it doesn't really affect me, as I just skip it. How about you? What percentage of threads do you read?

Should I move to nowhere?

Not all webloggers or Mefis live in big cities. Some live in small towns, while others have moved from one to the other. I'm considering moving from the suburbs to a very small town in the middle of nowhere. I've taken care of the logisistics: telecommuting, finding a house and am already married. From those that have done it, what are the downsides? Upsides? Opinions of anyone who's done it would be very helpful.

What do you think the most underated weblogs are? I could give a damn about the popular ones: popularity usually = mediocrity, in my opinion. I'm just searching for the more obscure ones that don't suck. No shameless self promotion please. No one likes an egoist.
