These types of lists are like political polls or Nielsen ratings. Iow, it all depends on whom you talk to.
Individual stories are anecdotal evidence, and by themselves, meaning almost nothing. It is when patterns emerge from these stories and experiences that you have meaningful data. But again, the data you get all depends on whom you have spoken to. You can't take everyone into account.

Then the lists are invalid. We all knew that anyway. Without available detailed data and the math, everything is anecdotal.

No, they are still an indicator. Just don't take it as gospel.

They are an anecdotal indicator and J. D. Powers, for example, has a reputation as being nothing more than part of marketing ploys. May the buyer beware. Do you own homework.
