Trying to get the level up (with just one post):

Before this post:

cash advance
The propinquity of mellifluous words in an Internet epistle (otherwise known as a blog post) can result in a denouement where one is situated in the highest echelon.

Mentioning philosophers Socrates, Plato, Kant and Hume as well as such schools as epicureanism, existentialism, hegelianism and hermeneutics can also act in furtherance of said goal. And it's advisable to quote luminaries like Goethe, Shakespeare, and Einstein. Be sure to include "chalcolithic" and "benthic" if you have the chance.

Biology offers a rich assortment of terms: neutrophil granulocyte, macrophage, chromatin, and hypochlorous acid for subsumption in your discourse.

Or maybe not. After this post: no change in reading level.

Explanation? According to D'Arcy Norman:
The readability test doesn’t take the actual content into account, just the lengths of words, sentences and paragraphs.


Quite so; my intellectual edification for the nonce is complete.

The test is flawed.

The word "Uggabugga" fouled up the ratings software.

lenths of words? ornithomimus! labyrinthian! fusillades! meretriciousness!

lengths of paragraphs? copy and paste! copy and paste! copy and paste! etc.
