Anti-Spam Measures To Block Out Stupidity
A new web site that promises to use the same kind of technology used in Anti-Spam measures to block out rampant stupidity from reaching your eyeballs.
Probably about time on some of this, the interesting part is using weighted Bayesian filters much line an anti-spam system to keep your brain from overheating when you read some of the more wild and outrageous things on the internet like this (not responsible for content), or even colleges seriously asking study questions like this (not responsible for content). Links are safe for work.
The solution we're creating is simple: an open-source filter software that can detect rampant stupidity in written English. This will be accomplished with weighted Bayesian or similar analysis and some rules-based processing, similar to spam detection engines. The primary challenge inherent in our task is that stupidity is not a binary distinction, but rather a matter of degree. To this end, we're collecting a ranked corpus of stupid text, gleaned from user comments on public websites and ranked on a five-point scale. Source

Is it just about time or long past time for software like this? Let alone how will it influence the SEO, page ranking, and other ways of getting your message out on the internet. Although this is one chunk of software that would be interesting to drive.
