The truth, at last! 11:30, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Someone let me know if there are any other graphs that make it worse, otherwise we're dealing with: 1 graph, (and thus approx.) 5 metacomplaints, 9 use/discussion complaints, 11 complaints and 12,5 hipsters. Unless of course, Randall's using one of his log scales or a completely different scale, and knowing him, it's not unlikely... Blue Charizard (talk) 14:36, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

There are many, many graphs, flowcharts, pie charts, etc, about hipsters on the internet. Just Google "hipster graphs" Randall must be talking about way more than only 12.5 hipsters... --Dangerkeith3000 (talk) 14:43, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
We are also talking about frequency of views ("How Often I see...") rather than actual numbers of graphs or people. As time goes on, the frequency of views per unit of time... etc. --DanB (talk) 15:53, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Hipster stuff is not meta enough. How about gender-fucking-fucking ? -- 17:49, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Meaning of hipster

This page has to explain the ambiguous meanings of the words hipster/hipsters/hipsterdom. Even web dictionaries are often wrong on this. First for "hipster" we have this subcultures Hipster (contemporary subculture) and Hipster (1940s subculture). But it's also this: Low-rise (fashion) witch may be refer to that tedious navel-gazing people. "Hipsterdom" is related to that subculture and according to this site [Hipsterdom] it is a hierarchy within the subculture of hipsters.--Dgbrt (talk) 18:47, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Is Randall actually complaining/judging as opposed to observing and sharing results? Graphing of the situation can arguably exacerbate any situation by virtue of raising attention to something, but that doesn't mean those graphs are giving any opinion. 23:28, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
