Fallacies of Relevance

Orion posted an interesting thread at SEW, citing this fallacies of relevance page. The SEW thread also has some good posts by other members & looks to be shaping up into a great thread.

Orion stated that he did not think current systems could yet grasp relevancy fallacies.

Love your site Aaron, but does anyone else have trouble making sense of this post? The grammar reminds me of a direct translation from a foreign language.
