That "I write like..." thing?

It reckons I write like J K Rowling.

I write like

Which, considering that the text I fed it was an old Harry Potter fanfic of mine is either incredibly clever of it, or incredibly dumb (maybe just programmed to recognise key words like "Harry," "Ron," and "Hermione"?)

A couple of lines of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy I fed it earlier resulted in "I write like Douglas Adams," which was actually rather surprising given the brevity of the text. Or maybe it just recognises some lines of Douglas'. On the other hand, dialogue samples from City of Death apparently register as Raymond Chandler; as do "he had a pleasant, open face," and "it made a wheezing groaning sound."

And a recent diary post of mine gives me this, rather unpleasant, result:

I write like
Dan Brown
