According to the Koppel-Argamon algorithm, over 98% of my LJ posts, USENET posts, and email messages were written by a woman.

I think maybe the algorithm is slightly bogus. And/or I'm not a typical male.

Or the algorithm as I have it implemented is incorrect. Mine is more or less the same one in the Perl version and may have the same flaws. The "permissive" variant, which I don't have in my code, is also more likely to generate that something was written by a woman.

The one I have is the one printed in NYT. I plan on getting the actual academic article and seeing what the algorithm really is.
