As for Michigan, it might as well as be non-existent. Rural and suburban areas are always poorly serviced.
In my experience with Michigan's public transportation systems, even urban areas are poorly serviced. I used to work in downtown Detroit--I saw more buses operated by Transit Windsor than by the City of Detroit. And don't get me started on the AATA (sorry, "TheRide")...
...for a reason. And that reason is, I don't care about
At least if you're going to do this, add polls to the exclusions list.
I'm afraid I can't answer this, since I'm not part of the design team. I will ask them to share their thoughts on design choices, but I can't promise anything.
You are here. They are not (which is a major part of the problem, IMO). Be convincing, please.

(Okay, it'd be a heck of a lot more expensive than some of the other solutions, but...)
I'd like to see all sections added to the "Exclusions" preferences – TV in particular.
Response to bug reports in a reasonable amount of time would also be nice, particularly if you're going to be adding new features.
How much do you want to bet that sometime in the very near future, under Tools | Options (yes, I still use the menus, f*** off), under Advanced, the Update tab will vanish, and all meaningful ability to control Firefox updates will vanish?
If Firefox had had some actual innovative ideas recently, I wouldn't (necessarily) have a problem, but they seem to have been copying Opera and especially Chrome, without actually thinking about WHY Opera and Chrome did what they did. Cargo cult, anyone?
