Readability

Got this in the mail. You can help out by donating (currently only bitcoins, see footer).

I have realized the readability algorithms are a load of crock. Their continued existence is only due to organizational and government requirements. With easy access to dictionaries using a good interface, I question the need of dumbing down text. That and the fact the algorithms were not correctly implemented is the reason why I have removed the readability tool. -- User:Dispenser June 27, 2010

For those wishing to find the readable prose size, please install User:Dr pda/prosesize.js. For the Flesch tests, use Microsoft Word.

And please don't be like these guys[1] and assume that correlation means anything more.
