Command line vs. menu driven interface

Katie Albers wrote in another thread:

"Let's take a really obvious example: Every test I've ever seen shows that
people are measurably faster using a mouse-based interface than a
command-based interface. At an extremely high level of expertise both in
typing and in the app, people do, in fact, become faster using the
commands... but "membership" in this group is much smaller than the number
of people who believe they are in the group.

Avoid self-fulfilling prophecies in Most Popular lists

Say you've got a list of the Top 5 Most Popular Whatevers. Is it
reasonable to fear that these top 5 will stay in the top 5, just
because they are positioned as the most popular?

If so, are there any best practices (or even anything you've used
successfully) for building an algorithm that will make sure the top 5
list isn't just a self-fulfilling prophecy?
