"Readability level" of Blogs

Daniel Solove (George Washington) compiles an amusing list of blogs based on their supposed "readability" level.  He doesn't note that my legal philosophy blog and my Nietzsche blog are both at the "genius" level (which shows that "genius" ain't what it used to be).  Of course, readability level is not the same as intellectual level or content, though when one looks at the list of those blogs (and news outlets) purported to be at the "junior high" level, the conflation is tempting!  And when the disgraceful Drudge Report turns out to be at the "elementary school" level, one begins to think this measure is on to something!
