So you don't care about how cameras compare but you care about Amazon sales rankings? OK. Justin Bieber outsells most artists. Does that make his music the best? Not even close.
You said the Nikon 1 was a dead-end concept. But the very fact that it compares favorably to other cameras, even some with larger sensors means that not only is a NOT a dead end concept, but is a great choice for people wanting great IQ in a fast shooting camera. And I don't know if you've used both cameras (I've owned both a J1 and RX100) but the J1 and RX100 bodies are exactly the same size. Look up the specs. Identical size.
The only reason the RX100 is popular is because it's one of the first P&S with a large sensor. That;s it. BUT it has muçh slower AF and performance than a J2. And the slow f4.9 lens at 100mm, is equivalent to f13.4 on FF. Not exactly desirable for portraits where you want subject/background separation. RX100 also has terrible macro performance, no macro mode. I don't know about you, but I like P&S for macro because they have deep DOF and focus extremely close. The RX100 doesn't, so why buy it? For 1/2 EV better high ISO vs other P&S? Not enough reason for me.
The Nikon 1 cameras have blazing fast AF, super accurate predictive tracking that an RX100 can't even do. For sports/action photography an RX100 wouldn't even be anywhere in the running. The RX100 is a snapshot camera, no more. It's main selling point is size but the J2 without the lens is the same exact size, but is a much more versatile camera. Period.
I'm not sure why you feel so threatened by the Nikon 1 camera, but if you don't like it, find a different camera. Nobody cares if YOU think it's a stupid camera.
