This is a hypothetical list, so take it as you may. I wanted to create a list where TC's opinions were tabulated but mainstream bias was removed (bias from any listener's mainstream origins and lack of experience), thus yielding a more experienced classical opinion, or at least one more foundational to TC.Note:I have no inserted personal bias in this, but have simply done exact math from a neutral stance. I found a major poll with such typical originating mainstream biases that may be similar to anything bleeding into this forum's membership, such as over 20,000 netizens voting Tchaikovsky and Chopin as the 3rd and 4th best composer, Rachmaninoff as 6th best, and thus I placed this list as a lens over TC's Top 50 Poll to act as a bias-removal shield for potential lack of experience (the logic being that, although TC already has a great list, the mistakes will be similar with overall netizens as they are on this forum.) This is called a statistical leverage, where hypothetically we're able to emphasize more experienced TC members out of the bunch. Although my goal with this list was to obtain the more uniquely expert tastes of this forum, in the correct ratio, what it simply does is obtain the forum's differences of perspective compared to the mainstream. Thus the argument formed by this is: expertisemay becorrelated to this forum where a lack of such is correlated to mainstream opinions, and if so, we can calculate the difference and estimate how much mainstream bias slipped into our own forum polls. Choosing a top composer doesn't necessarily have to do with their influence, but how much we like their music.

Note:I have inserted no personal bias into this list, but have only done exact math from a neutral stance. For math, the page where the top 35 composers in the forum poll hit max points, was tabulated, and simply added to the earlier difference for the top 35 where an equal exponential growth was carefully measured, as well as an equal range to the following list. (This overall method of tabulating based on the empiricism of forum favoritism is more accurate, where favorites are piled into a list earlier than all the fixes.) Then these TC totals were divided by a <1 root of the total votes each composer received in themainstreampoll, thereby making an equal adjustment everywhere. In plain English, this means I took TC's rating of each composer, and removed some of the mainstream rating of each composer at their given ratio. Remember, this list is hypothetical, so take it as you may. To demonstrate this new method and its change from your typical Top 50 list, once calculating the mainstream origin bias, the overall root (the quotient from list 1 to list 2) was set to 0.3 root. List entries in any new mechanism have to rise and some have to fall inherently, no one can ever agree on any one list or mechanism, so we're left with potentialities which can be argued and never agreed upon. This list attempts to target the moreTC-uniquesample audience at a given ratio. In this list, we're essentially just looking at the non-mainstream side of TC, in other words, ridding mainstream or inexperienced bias from TC. Here is the result:
