This webapp takes in a URL to a comment page like on Youtube or Reddit and tells you whether it's worth your time to participate in the discussion or not by analyzing the comments.

The app scrapes comments off of YouTube and Reddit comment pages and analyzes five aspects of each comment: the percentage of capital words used, the average length of the post, the unique word ratio, and the proportion of swears used. Each of these qualities affect the final score of the discussion page, based on how much they detract from meaningful, civil conversation.
