, many ToolForge tools stopped
working as user tables are eliminated.
I have realized the readability algorithms are a load of crock. Their continued existence is only due to
organizational and government requirements. With easy access to dictionaries using a good interface, I question the
need of dumbing down text. That and the fact the algorithms were not correctly implemented is the reason why I have
removed the readability tool. -- User:Dispenser June 27, 2010

And please don't be like these guys and assume that correlation means anything more.
