Stupid Filter – WordPress Plugin

by on November 30th, 2007

Too long we have suffered in silence under the dictatorship of idiocy. In the beginning, the internet was a place where one could communicate intelligently with similarly learned people. Then we were lost in the noise. The coming of user-driven web content has intensified the matter yet further, distorting our tolerance to the breaking point. It’s time to fight back.

An open-source filter software that can detect clear stupidity in written English is approaching. This will be accomplished with weighted Bayesian or similar analysis and some rules-based processing, similar to spam detection engines. Eventually, once the research is completed, developers plan to release core engine source code for incorporation into content management systems, blogs, wikis and the like. Additionally, developers plan to develop a fully implemented Firefox plugin and a WordPress plugin.

That seems like really great leap towards spam free websites/blogs. Stupid filter is under testing. You can enjoy randomized stupidity at http://stupidfilter.org/random.php yet.
