Software that checks for potential misunderstandings in emails?! My dream retroactively came true! @ 10:41 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: indescribable

This article was written over seven years ago. The past seven years of my life would've been SO much better if I'd known about it back then (and there was a way to use it on LJ entries and comments instead, or someone made a similar system for checking those)!

Interesting. But you have been doing fine on your own, even if you don't think so. :)

Maybe I have been now, but I wasn't when this article was written (which was published on July 26, 2010 - over a year before the Forbidden Comment Threads and a mere day or two after I offended a bunch of people in suggestions, for starters).

For a while (in 2010-2013 most likely), I'd been wanting to write a program that would analyze an entry or comment before I post it and predict how likely I am to regret it (based on similarities to previous entries/comments that I either did or didn't regret), but I never started it because I didn't have a lot of free time and I only had a really vague idea of where to start. I'm glad someone else apparently made the same thing, even if it was years ago and for emails instead of LJ posts. :)

You were then, too. Everyone regrets things they've said, all the time.
