    Yes, but... well, we're mentioned as super-nerdy! :-(


    I think that's sort of a reasonable label for us among SE sites. But at least we're also "really good," right?

    Well, for instance StackOverflow sounds nerdier to me. Or


    StackOverflow answers technical questions that are relevant to anyone who uses computers, which is a lot of people. (By contrast, even if we are in principle willing to answer mathematical questions that come up in non-mathematical disciplines, we don't do so very often.)


    (Feature requests?)

    @Qiaochu: yes, that's why I feel StackOverflow as nerdier than this place. Many people program computers for fun (including me), and that's well... nerdy. Even more so if they hang on StackOverflow. MathOverflow, in contrast, is geared towards professional mathematicians, not amateurs. Well, not that I care much, but just to explain my point.
