Comments on: About offensiveness http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/09/28/about-offensiveness/ "A man needn't go far to find a subject, if he's ready with his salt-box."--Uncle Pumblechook Wed, 14 May 2014 19:32:14 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: jbj http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/09/28/about-offensiveness/comment-page-1/#comment-2503 Mon, 01 Oct 2007 01:13:49 +0000 http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/09/28/about-offensiveness/#comment-2503 I can see that.

One was an out-of-office reply from a service engineer and the other was a scientist in Russia. Both were flagged as spam.

BTW, I enjoyed your critique of using MS Word Flesch-Kincaid scores. What I’ve found is that the grade level for most scientific journals is skewed by multisyllabic words and long descriptive sentences.
