    Default Bullshit Detector

    Some of you might appreciate this. Detect bullshit in political websites! However, it's designed for a UK audience, so it might not work so well on American sites.

    Bullshit detector

    Some examples:
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/agenda/education/ (11 counts)
    http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/04/02/rollins.trip/index.html (5 counts)

    Great find, rhinosaur.

    Seems to target deferential words/phrases with a "spellcheck" analogue. Hilarious stuff. Many of the "Top Offenders" appear to be British government websites. (Nevermind the Bullshit Detector itself stemming from a British website...)

    It's clear that we can't trust the English.
