“Hi! A quick word of advice to the criminal element. If you think it's a good idea to walk down the middle of a street pulling on every car door to see if it's open and taking things from cars that are unlocked, do make sure no one is watching you! It'll ruin your night when the police pick you up and you go to jail! This has been a helpful hint. Enjoy the night in jail. 'Bye!”

classy. dude has a bright future ahead of him.

did you actually curse in the voice post? it looks like it got censored by the auto-transcription, but then i figured maybe it just couldn't puzzle out a word that you said.

The auto-transcriber got a few things wrong (in one case, wrong in a way that makes me half-wonder if it was editorializing a bit :); I've corrected the transcription, because that's how much of a life I have.

You know, I think the real utility of the autotranscriber is not the automatic transcription itself, but the fact that it provides a base from which real live people can easily refine it into correctness.

And by sitting there being almost but not quite right, it actually annoys people into wanting to fix it. :)

Heh, normally I don't bother even listening to phoneposts, but in this case, I happened to be on the phone with Zoner when he noticed the pack of criminals ("Uh, I gotta go. I'm-a call the cops."), so I had something of an interest in the eventual outcome.
