    Online Stupidity Filter!!! What a Godsend...

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    As the Head Moderator for this site, I get all sorts of complaints about low quality posts made in the various forums here. Obviously, were not the only forum to have these kinds of issues, and according to Fortune magazine, someone is actually working on a online stupidity filter!!!

    I don't know Mr. Miyata, stupidity can be a VERY devious enemy.

    I am skeptical about this one, I would have to see it in work myself to truly believe it.

    I am glad the article mentioned about DIGG though, one of my favorite sites in the past. Now it's stupid viral videos and useless articles.

    It would be interesting to see in action. Question is, at what point do you draw the stupidity line. Some things waver there in the middle. What's brilliant for one is sheer stupidity for another. I would like to see what it could do though.

    I would really like to see this one in action. It sounds like a good idea to put into play...that is if it works. Lets give it a test cycle of 10 days to a month maybe.

    It would be interesting to see if it would work and stop some of the stupidity that may happen with some one posting.As for if i think it will work ? i dunno if it would since it is the fist of its kind, and know one knows if it will work. But hopefully it might work.

    True that. I could say something along the lines of, "E=MC2," and someone will go, that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Some people think that watching anime is stupid, but I tend to think otherwise. Everyone's got thier line in the sand that separates intelligent from stupid. It's a matter of where that line is drawn.
