This is a Python tool to generate data to make pretty graphs showing the readability of Stack Exchange answers.
Do what you like with this. Don't blame me. I would say Creative Commons By-Attribution, but I don't care if you even give me attribution.
* You need Python 2.x
* You need a copy of the Stack Exchange Data Dump (try http://data.stackexchange.com/about), which means you need a BitTorrent client.
* Before you start, find the data.xml file from the zip file for the site you are interested in from the Stack Exchange Data Dump. Copy it into the same directory as reader.
* Run "python reader.py".
* Use the resulting table to draw absurd conclusions, with huge caveats.
