I try very hard not to get involved in flames, but because of your 
patronising tone, and the obvious inference that you think I'm thick, 
I'm not prepared to let this one go.

I'll post it again.


"I even got quite fancy and built a Markov-chain finite-state 
statistical dialog modeller. It monitored the flow of IRC channel 
nicknames and automated the process of determining who was talking to 
whom, and who were the "bosses" who commanded the most power and respect."

Notice that he almost uses your own words.
