Log similarity in Stat compare?

+1 vote
I like the new statistic item "Log similarity", because it tells you more about the quality of the logs than the log length. Would it be possible to integrate the log similarity also in the stat compare? And it also would be interesting to have a top list for log similarity...

In Stat compare it might be possible. For a top list, it won't be (with reasonable efforts).

Depending on the number of finds of a user, it takes a lot of time to compute. For my 11000 finds, it takes about 40-45 seconds to calculate this value. Then imagine doing that for a few million users.

idea of log similarity seems to be good idea, but lot of geocachers (including me) use automatic signature during log creating (I use Locus where is possibility to have pre-defined logs) and I think that these signatures little bit deforms similarity stats as they are same (mayby there should be some string that means strings after this string are not counted in stats - if it is possible by FTF strings)....
