Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

it doesn't detect sarcasm, and almost universally defends europeans.

also, with a volunteer base of 800 of this guy's friends, i'm certain there's a bunch of ******* in the mix incorrectly doing the evaluating.
also, this is OT, which makes everything up to this post stupid.

I bet this guy doesn't actually have 800 "friends" in real life. These are just his e-buddies and he has no life outside of his apartment.

Oh my god, how can someone be this stupid???

A homebrew program (or a commercial one for that matter) will never be capable of filtering out stupid comments without taking out a couple of sarcastic or primitively worded valuable comments, at which point it becomes a huge pita. And then how do you follow a discussion with half the posts missing???

I so want to smack ppl like him in the face with a large dead fish.
