Toilets in the "sitting" position
This regards your comment on the ancient toilets supposedly used in the sitting position. A few points:
1. The toilets discussed in the quote were not Roman toilets, the ones shown in the picture.
2. I contacted Dick Teresi, the author of the quote, asking him how he knew that the toilets were used in the sitting position. He refused to reply to my question. I suspect that he has made the same mistake that is often made by tourists who sit on the ancient Roman toilets. They see footpads as "seats", due to their cultural insularity.
I copied this message to the image talk page, where your initial comment appeared. If you want to reply to my comments, please put your reply there, since I won't be watching your talk page. Thanks. --Jonathan108 (talk) 16:21, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
Bayesian spam filtering
I have edited the article to make the maths correct. Unlike what you thought, Paul Graham's forumla is correct. It's the article's formula that was just plain wrong. Just have a look. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 12:00, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
