athelind grauphs, "LOL!"
athelind grauphs, "I think it's just a very noisy algorithm with huge error bars. it's not ENTIRELY fatuous, since it tells me that I write like H.P. Lovecraft much of the time, in circumstances where, yes, I'm deliberately trying to write like HPL."
leonard_arlotte says, "My point is, does H.P. Lovecraft write like H.P.Lovecraft?"
athelind grauphs, "Indeed. And there's public domain HPL stuff online to use as a test case."
athelind grauphs, "... dammit. go to lunch. I'll test it."
leonard_arlotte says, "thank you."
Plugging in the text of "The Colour Out of Space", we find that H.P. Lovecraft ...
... writes like Stephen King.
I totally need an Athelind Rolling In the Hoard Laughing icon.
