comment Entering any two of four inter-dependent values
Well, it's worthwhile to check how commonplace these extra short and extra long runs slopes are. Maybe they need to be treated as edge cases. Even if they aren't, it can be fairly easily to solve - you set "barriers" at the near and far ends of the X axis, and as long as they keep "pushing" the handle against the barrier, you decrease/increase the measurement. Basically similar to scrolling by middle-click.

comment Why do laptops have so many stickers?
It's actually an ad-based industry, the prices they charge for the actual laptops are just for show.

comment Automatic forwarding or not? What is better for the user?
Yes, that's why you should provide a way back. It can be an opt-in approach, like in the Google translate example, or an opt-out approach like in the CNN example. But both options should be available in any case.

comment Why don't chinese teacups have handles
For one thing, they're infinitely easier to store since they can be stacked. For another, they are just a smaller version of a traditional chinese bowl, not as common in England as in China. But seriously this is a question for historians of kitchenware, not UX.

comment Gracefully Constrain Window Size
Users will feel limited if the UI requires more real estate than you've given it, i.e it's uncomfortable for them to work in the allocated space. Otherwise there's no reason for them to feel limited.

comment Improve the way we display members, pending members, non-members and pending deleted members
Just the numbers in the column cells, without the font games, and the descriptions in the column headers. I'd make the text wrap in the header row, so instead of having very wide columns that only contain numbers, you make them narrower. Meaning that "Pending members" and the other titles are broken down into two lines within the header cell.
