I am becoming tired of the word "curated" unless it is being used in a context implying a qualified curator. This could be someone's random list of browser links for all I know. Who are the curators of this list and how are they qualified for me to are about their "curated" list? I don't necessarily mean formal qualifications. Also, curation implies active and personal involvement (as opposed to passive analysis based on statistical measures of relevance or citations). Why in this case would I prefer personal curation?

The list includes The Will to Power as the first entry under Nietzsche. On this basis I'd have to question the degree to which this list was curated at all as this work wasn't actually written by Nietzsche, but rather edited together by his sister whose motives may have been suspect.
