I have had quite a few additions of late where the name is either so common, or I have not been able to find a link or context, so have taken the coward's way out and selected "dump it in IMDb's lap".

I'm curious though - what actually happens when i pick that option? Is it assigned to a person who basically just does what I could have done (looks to see if any of the potential people have worked with others on the film before; if they have worked in the same city doing the same job; etc etc) or is there an automated review that basically does the same thing.

I of course try to find out myself by looking for common work etc, but it isn't always possible...so, what happens when i cop out and dump it on IMDb?

I'm never sure what to say when the site asks me how I'm feeling just because I want to ask a question.

On this occasion, this just came to mind (NSFW):

From South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut, well worth seeing if you have not. I'm not a real follower of the show, but the film manages to satirize the response to the film before the film was even shown and to boot it perfectly delivers all you'd want from a musical while also using that as part of the joke (even getting one of the songs Oscar nominated in the process)

It is rude but this doesn't mean it isn't smart at the same time.

Most of the series with rare exception is pretty good satire as well. Especially when it sticks to pop culture topics. I still crack up over what they did to paris hilton (and that was years ago)

Okay, I guess this one is not even getting a 'sorry but we prefer not to give out such specifics' answer.
Disappointed not even to get a reply, far less an answer, but I'll drop it now.

Under these circumstances, I prefer this very safe for work video:
8 Hour Nature Sound Relaxation-Soothing Forest Birds Singing-Relaxing Sleep Sounds-Without Music
This is one of a series of videos designed for various needs: as a calming sound to play in the background while studying or as a soothing sound to play while you sleep.

I need that right now.  The neighbors, obviously "on" something, have been yelling at each other (not arguing, just yelling everything they say), though they're sitting in a small room together...I'm picturing them having been up all night "snorting" someting...this will mask the din of their odd discussion!
