    Wordle--the solution for trolling!

    By now, we have seen the work of John and his dislike for cyclists.

I mean, I guess itís fun making fun of people because of your own insecurities, but you all take to a whole new level. This is even worse than skateboarding down a public staircase.
    Donít be a stranger. Just hit me with your best shot. Iím pretty much perfect. I was captain of the football team, and starter on my basketball team. What sports do you play, other than ďpedal my stupid bike aroundĒ? I also get straight Aís, and have a banging hot girlfriend (She just blew me; **** was SO cash). You should just kill yourselves. Thanks for listening.
    These words can come across as cold and uninspired at times. Fortunately, Wordle (Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds) allows one to visualize what is being said. I ran the John's post through the Wordle engine and out popped this figure. As you can appreciate from the figure, it is a very disarming way of visualizing what is being said without having to wade through the long post.

    Next time you see a dissertation of a post, run it through and see what comes out. Main points are theoretically captured by the size of the fonts. Posts without a clear pattern of bolded words may be missing a point.

    I think ALL written or typed communication should be displayed like this.

    I was curious about what other text would look like, so I took this MTBR review of a fox pump and ran it through Wordle. This came out (after a few pushes of the 'randomizer' button change the layout). Pretty cool.

    I'm might have to read up more on wordle'ng. The layout really does seem to affect the mood of the text. Somehow I'm finding this too interesting. Perhaps it is a sign that things are slow these days.

    All kidding aside, I believe that text arranged this way could develop our brains over time to new levels never before seen.

    I could see this as a teaching tool. I remember constantly being told to develop key points. Presumably, this software would help someone test the presence of a key point due to the weighting of the words. Quickly scanning things seems to suggest you need longer text to be more effective (to avoid uniform word use).

    Then as you say, it likely helps with reading comprehension where you can focus on key terms and them supplement them with the less frequently used terms/concepts.

    Ever see one of those posts that looks like a box of alpha-bits threw up on the keyboard?

    And I don't mean a spam-bot. I mean from an apparently real person, but it's so damn hard to read because it's one long sentence paragraph of gibberish and misspelled words?

    The shape of My name is John Wordle kind of looks like an unwaxed eye brow. Maybe there is meaning behind the post... or maybe not... nevermind
