    so i would take top ten buildings to mean various factors have been studied and these ten are at the top of those categories.  i would stick to the factual articles rather than opinion pieces.  top has some meaning.  whether it's specific or general.

    data aggregated together to provide relevant information.

    as in the Arab spring had more articles, more comments, went on longer and even had a bigger impact than any other news story of the year.  

    •  How would you pick the factors? (0+ / 0-)

      Opinion. You really don't know the difference between fact and your opinion. There is no possible way we can communicate.

      For a so called numbers guy, you are very fuzzy headed. Some words are too vague, too fuzzy to be used in a factual context, and "top" is one of them because the factors that make up "top" are all opinion, too.

      In my OPINION, Arab spring had fewer articles, with less comments, and was in the public eye for only a brief period. But I am not claiming to have done any research, you are, so provide it. All you have provided are dubious online sources talking about other online sources. Your links do not mention radio time, TV time, column inches, or anything else that is relevant to defining "top."

      I will take a lack of links to the research you used to come to your conclusion as an admission that you have done none.

      Oh god, the lack of logic, it makes my brain hurt:

      top has some meaning.  whether it's specific or general.

      If the meaning is general, then it is not specific enough to be factual. Generalizations are not factual! Seriously, I am done with you wasting my time like this. Good day, sir. Please do not take my lack of further communication with you as anything other than total exasperation on my part, specifically, I am not going away because you "won" anything. Unless you count annoying someone until they walk away in disgust as a win.
