I'm simply wondering what the average rating is for all movies in the entire database. It used to be visible on IMDb's Top 250 page, listed as 7.0 the last time I saw it (at least some months ago). The site states that it uses a Bayesian estimate to arrive at its Top 250 ratings, and the "mean vote" is one of the variables in this equation. I don't see much harm in letting the public know what the mean vote is, since this gives insight to the rating scale, i.e. what can be considered an "average" film.
