    Love the site, especially because you cite sources. This one, though

    40-55% of all Wikipedia vandalism is caught by a single computer program with 90% accuracy

    reminded me of the movie Anchorman because of the line “80% of the time it works all of the time”.

What should be looked at is the device computing capabilities and what is has built into it software wise.
