CLAIMS
What is claimed is:
1. A computer-implemented method of approving a document, comprising:
comparing the document to one or more criteria; and
determining whether the document contains an element that is substantially identical to one or more of a visual element, an audio element or a textual element that is determined to be displeasing.
2. The method of claim 1 further comprising making an approval or disapproval determination based on the determining act.
3. The method of claim 1 wherein the visual element, audio element or textual element were determined to be displeasing based on human input.
4. The method of claim 1 wherein the visual element, audio element or textual element were determined to be displeasing automatically.
5. The method of claim 1, wherein the act of comparison comprises determining whether the document contains computer code that may generate an action that is
substantially identical to one or more actions determined to be displeasing.
6. The method of claim 5, wherein the act of determining comprises determining whether the document contains delay parameters of lower magnitude than a delay parameter determined to be pleasing.
7. The method of claim 5, wherein the act of determining comprises determining whether the document contains computer code that results in the downloading of one or more video documents without initiation by the user.
8. The method of claim 5, wherein the act of determining comprises determining whether the document comprises computer code downloads one or more audio documents without initiation by the user.
9. The method of claim 5, wherein the act of determining comprises determining whether the document comprises computer code that downloads one or more video or audio documents without initiation by the user.
10. The method of claim 5, wherein the act of determining comprises determining whether the document comprises computer code that downloads one or more video and one or more audio documents without initiation by the user.
11. The method of claim 5, wherein the act of determining comprises determining whether the document comprises computer code that obtains data from sources other than the document itself.

12. The method of claim 5, wherein the act of determining comprises determining whether the document comprises computer code that opens network connections.
13. The method of claim 5, wherein the act of determining comprises determining whether the document comprises computer code that loops greater than a number previously designated for comparison.
14. The method of claim 5, wherein the act of determining comprises determining whether the document comprises computer code that includes simulated random number generation.
15. The method of claim 5, wherein the act of determining comprises determining whether the document comprises computer code that calls hardware that is substantially identical to one or more types of hardware determined to be displeasing.
16. The method of claim 15, wherein the one or more types of hardware comprises a computer mouse.
17. The method of claim 15, wherein the one or more types of hardware comprises a game controller.
18. The method of claim 1, wherein the act of comparing comprises comparing an image of the document with quality values determined to be pleasing.
19. The method of claim 18, wherein the one or more quality parameters comprises a degree of definition of a border boundary of a visual content of the document.
20. The method of claim 18, wherein the one or more quality parameters comprises an extent that a border boundary of a visual content of the document occupies a visual content of the document
21. The method of claim 1 , wherein the act of comparing comprises comparing a frame of an image of the document change contrast rate with a change contrast rate determined to be pleasing.
22. The method of claim 1 , wherein the act of comparing comprises comparing a color change rate of a frame of an image with a color change range determined to be pleasing.

23. The method of claim 1, wherein the act of comparing comprises comparing a rate at which an image of a document translates with a rate of translation determined to be pleasing. 24. A system for approving a first document, comprising:
a comparison module that compares one or more characteristics of the first document being evaluated with at least one parameter; and a determination module that determines whether the document contains an element that is substantially identical to one or more of a visual element, an audio element or a textual element that is determined to be displeasing.
25. A computer-implemented method of rating a document, comprising:
comparing the document to one or more criteria;
determining whether the document contains an element that is substantially identical to one or more of a visual element, an audio element or a textual element that is determined to be displeasing; and
rating the document based on the comparison result.
26. The method of claim 25, further comprising:
displaying the rating of the document.
27. A computer-implemented method of rating a document, comprising:
comparing the document to one or more criteria;
determining whether the document contains an element that is substantially identical to one or more of a visual element, an audio element or a textual element that is determined to be displeasing; and
designating the document for review based on the comparison.
28. The method of claim 1, further comprising:
displaying the approval or rejection status of the document.
