    I found the complaints list quite interesting. There have been a number of times when I also fell into the “Why is this on the list and that isn’t” column. So what? Are we, as a species, so desirous of becoming totally homogenized that we must think in lock step? May we have no peaceful divergent opinions? Must everything be conflict? I suppose the answer to that last question is easily answered by the preferences of American TV audiences and the “reality” shows they embrace.
    At any rate, I enjoy the site and frequently make reference to it on my radio program.
    Keep on keepin’ on. Let people disagree. It’s good for you!

    PS: I like the fact that you embrace your Christian faith in public. Too bad that more of us don’t.

    Good thing is you have a sense of humor, i don’t share all your opinions but it’s always fun reading those lists. Frankly people shouldn’t take those too seriously :-).
    one complain you didn’t mention (well it’s not really one but who’s counting :-)) is the typo errors that sometimes appear on your lists, i’m pretty sure you made them on purpose to be sure you have our attention 🙂 and to have more complaints of course.

    Wow. You have reached a new low. The title of this list should be, “This list is stupid!” You should not have included, “This list sucks,” because adding a ‘bonus’ makes it *eleven.* Why are “There aren’t enough women” and “This is racist” even on this list? Didn’t you review your own blog well enough to know that is not true? Shockingly, you also seem to think its okay to show your christian bias on your own site. Don’t you realize the rest of the world exists? We are not all christian, you know! Lastly, a review typical comments shows that you should have included, “Not enough of MY opinion, which is better than yours.” In the future, let’s put a little more thought into our lists, shall we? 😛

    What a great list. Maybe I should have called it dumb/stupid/boring just to make you feel more at home. I hope you had fun writing this one.
    I read this list almost every day. I often disagree with what’s in here, but that’s half the fun. If I agreed with all of it, I might as well write it myself.
    I look forward to reading list #2000 in a couple of years.

    I have been a frequent visitor to this site for a while now and i just read that you are a Christian. I am pleased to see that a person who is witty, clever, intellegent and funny also shares my belief system. Keep up the good work!!

    This list is incredibly biased – I counted 4 list that i wrote that you singled out for examples! what are you trying to say TopTenzMaster? And what kind of name is TopTenzMaster anyway? Now THAT sounds racist! Lmao –

    I’m surprised that this idea actually stuck with you to manifest into a list, but it was well done and certainly on point (and fitting) to cap off your 1000th list milestone. Congrats!

    Those who do not like your lists can just : unsubscribe”

    Hopefully by highlighting people’s complaints about lists they read will inspire them to write their own lists and as the lists get better, the complaints disappear and we get some good rational debates in the comment sections

    Well I may have to submit a list myself soon. Hopefully one that will get people talking

    you should change the title to “Top 11 Lists about why TopTenz sucks” 😉

      But this isn’t a list of lists and the eleventh entry is a bonus, and not part of the top ten.

    This list sucks! It’s racist and there is not enough women. You left off so many other things. I don’t think you know what a top 10 list should look like.

    ha, ha!

    I don’t see a point in complaining on this site. Everyone has an opinion and this is your site and your lists. Some people just want to look for verification that they are right. I think that it is good that you have different opinions than me, or else this would be a boring site.

    You were doing fine till you hit #1. That one made this list biased/opinionated, for your chiding of commenters who didn’t happen to share your beliefs.

    I remember the first week I discovered this site. I took hours of of that week to scale through the lists on the site. Though I may have disagreed with quite a couple lists, I thought they were all fun reads. Thank you TopTenzMaster and congrats.

    I think people get the “American bias” a bit wrong: I wouldn’t care about reading more lists based on the US, but then there are lists like that Top 10 Terrorist Attacks: They include international and US-based stuff, but while the international things are just the best known and most important ones, the US-centered facts include things that are of much less importance. Therefore it looks as if someone researched US-centered facts and filled them up with international ones when he couldn’t find enough.
    For example: You are writing a list “Top Ten biggest Cabbages”. In reality, the US has grown eight record ones from 1 to 5 tons. Russia has grown eighty from 4 to 5,5 tons. With your writing method, the list will include all eight US cabbages and the 5,5 tons Russian one. And the one missing? That will probably be an US lucette or even pumpkin.
    So the complaint isn’t that there are US-centered lists. Those are fine, even if sometimes boring for people from other countries. The problem is that lists, that are not US-centered are written with an US-bias.
    The “Top Ten Terrorist Attacks” is a perfect example. Hardly anyone outside the US has heard of the bombing of the USS Cole or even worse a completely non-lethal release of Salmonella (!) in Oregon – but the list was oblivious to the Islamist attacks on hotels in Mumbai 2011 or any of the big train bombings in Madrid, Spain (2004) or London (2005). And those really where things shown in the media everywhere.

    I dont believe in God but nothing annoys me more than when somebody tries to preach that God never existed… I say fair play to people who have their beliefs, as they are usually good people.

    Great article and love the site.

    I think the title should be changed… to Top 10 Complaints About TopTenz (Why Toptenz is Awesome!)
    If all the lists were such that no complaints, ire or controversy were raised, it would be a very boring site indeed.
    Well done and thanks!

    Nice article. It is good that someone can claim and own their faults.
    On that note, though I see I am extremely late learning of this website and this post, I would like to point out that on your map for the “U.S. centric world view” you only have central America listed as “Latino.”
    It is worth noting that Latin America, and therefore “Latinos,” are all peoples from Central and South America. That would also include Brazilians.
    Enjoy your site!

    I really don’t understand why so many people are always so offended that someone is a certain religion.
