Someone emailed me the above a few years ago. Interesting, yes. Useful? Meh.
I find it much easier to read if I avoid looking at individual words and just sort of glide over the sentences. It helps that words consisting of 3 or fewer letters can't be changed without breaking the rules. It makes the structure of the sentence more apparent.

The gibberish one encounters on the web isn't as organized as the above passage. ^_^

I'm one of the 55 as well. I also agree that the stuff seen on the web is not nearly as organized as the first post.

Wow, this is strange. When I first started to read the paragraph, I did't realize there was anything wrong. The fact that I can read it is bizarre.
