I decided to post this post with all words sorted alphabetically (via Google Spreadsheets). Can you still understand it?

It is doubtful that this phrase will ever reach equilibrium.

This reminds me of the online version of the Starship Titanic novel, which is alphabetized for your convenience:

Not only sentences with scrambled words can be understood rather well. Also words with scrambled letters can still be decoded quickly enough to have the feeling of actual reading...

I've subscribed to the blog to read about Google and connected things, answering polls or deciphering posts isn't why I added it to my reader. To me it's off-topic, annoying and eventually a reason to unsubscribe. No offense, it's your blog, just felt like you might want to know that not everyone enjoys these experiments.

Sebastian, I may introduce a separate RSS feed (additional to the main one) only including posts which contain the keyword "google". Admittedly, in this case it would have been included, because the post also includes the word "Google" (or "YouTube" etc.), but generally it might work to separate between the 80% and the 20% stuff. Thanks for the feedback.
