pol pot, aids, and murder all graded out as positive tho so either this site's data is flawed or the internet is completely debased

given the huddle as a data subset i'd say it's the latter

Since launching, this has sparked up some discussion as to how it all works. Well, you can understand that I don’t want to disclose too much of the ‘algorithm’ of the site. However: basically it searches based on associative (so far just English) sentences. The given search term is used in these sentences which are then sent off to the various search engines, counting the amount of results returned. (Sentences are double quoted before they are sent off, so as to make sure the search-engines search for occurrences of the *whole* sentence).
This, of course, produces questionable results which should not be taken very seriously. However, the more results (hits) returned, the more reliable these results can become. Do a search for George Bush and then Barack Obama, and you’ll see that the internet is certainly not far off – or perhaps even in-sync – with the result you had in mind.

My advice would be to do 10 ‘obvious’ searches, of which you are almost certain of the results, based on your perception of general opinion (e.g. ‘beer’, ‘sex’, ‘sleeping’, etc.) and then do 10 less obvious searches. If the first 10 convince you of even the slightest accuracy, the second 10 will perhaps be not as random as you thought.

You put just about any NFL team into that search and it will come out to at least 80% negative.

90% of the 90% of negative things about the Panthers probably come from teh Huddle.

To call the methodology on that "flawed" would be an insult to flaws.

I was expecting a how it works page to read something like "we just make the numbers up Enron style - but noone cares. People will post it everywhere to prove their points online".

You used to be able to search for Osama Bin Laden, Suddam Hussein, and Hitler, and they'd come back positive. So yeah, I don't think that their little project is very reliable.

They jealous of the swag

But seriously, what team wouldn't have a large percent negativity, especially ones with smaller fanbases.
