    No idea, really. It's a fairly meaningless score.

    Re: Sarah Palin's Writing Analyzed

    How to improve your own score:

    1) Make sure every sentence you write starts with this word:

    pneaumonultramicroscopicsilicovelkonakaeniosis.

    2) Refer to your email as electronicinternetmailfromacomputer.

    3) Say "myself" instead of "I". That gains you one syllable and probably half a grade of learning.

    4) Say Allyoupeopleoutthere instead of "you". That'll gain you a whole grade easily.

    5) Don't use ANY word that a politician uses, unless you want to be graded as a moron.

    6) Never use any word shorter than Tucker Case's penis, unless you want to be regarded as brain dead.

    7) Try using some Russian words. Some of those are very long (I hear one actually has more than 100 letters in it, and means nothing at all, but who cares?).

    8) Don't get your news from AOL. They dumb everything down, because they believe that we are all dumber than a box of rocks.

    9) But maybe we all are.

    10) Finally uninstall Microsoft Word from your computer. Then you don't have to worry about all this silly crap.

    Actually, I confirmed it. As soon as I put in footnotes, my scores dropped significantly.

    Your post is team rape? Certainly. My mind has been violated.
