Don't bother much, people that don't understand the scientific method harm their own intelligence.

Wouldn't mind that, though most of those list are categorized with author bias.


There is also a degree of perspective that isn't easily understood, let alone mentioned. Take for instance individual hardware components and pricing. Granted, I doubt anyone here cares as long as they're happy with performance.

Can you elaborate? Made me very interested. With some examples too please. And why does it matter to you?

Well, a general ranking like: "These mice are all good, for what they want to achieve (while listing what they excel at), now make your pick" would be helpful.

Those "God, Good, blabla" never meant anything because only extremely biased people seemed to make them (like that one member we all know). Very similar to the tier lists of music genres that some people seem to make.

Simply stating "best mouse" doesn't really help imo.
