    Well, if you take a look, even a not very close one, just at the surface so to speak, through users' journals and group discussions etc, you will discover that there seems to be one thing that nearly everyone does, did or surely soon will do: Questionnaires. Any version of a music quiz asking questions like "where did you hear band X for the first time" or "what's your favourite song by artist Y" etc.

    I always refused making something like that. On the one hand because it is only to help people to represent their taste as fast as possible, and on the other hand because the questions are just coincidental... "Of course they are", one could say, but nevertheless I would think the whole affair to be more meaningful if I would consider myself, concerning which group or which artist I would like to ask which question...
    The other important reason for me not to make it was the fact that my whole profile wasn't really representative for my musical preferences. …
