Maybe I don't write like

The LJ-osphere (is that a word? if not it should be) lets me know that yesterday's post on I Write Like, which was based on a supposed textual analysis by another site, might not actually be, y'know, 100% correct on who I really do write like.

Much of the criticism is a lot of fun, where fans test the site to see what exactly goes into 'writing like' (the word 'duck' features prominently) and some of it is the usual LJ rant on whether the writer of the analysis is only considering white folks (apparently yes).

Fun (Making Light commenters with added ducks)
