An anonymous reader writes “Netflix has released some statistics about its users, showing that more than one percent of its customer base has rated 5,000 shows or more. A reporter for The Atlantic tracked down a few of those extreme users, to find out why they do it. Mike Reilly, a producer, heard about the Netflix prize, and wanted to test the limits of the movierecommendation algorithm. Lorraine Hopping Egan has rated over 6,500 shows but she still uses word of mouth when trying to decide what to watch.”
