I was one of the hosts, and it didn't really bother me. You might want 
to keep in mind that no algorithm is always going to work, and there is 
probably an 80/20 rule here. 20% of the good rules you can come up with 
will get you 80% of the results you want, and adding more rules takes 
more and more effort for less and less result. Since I don't think you 
want to turn this int a full-time unpaid job, I'd be happy for this to 
come out as "It mostly works, and when it doesn't, it's amusing."
