I think you'd better do it. I understand how you arrived at this answer, but not a lot of the others.

I'll barge in as a late entry as the spoiler.....

Take the length of each word in the text submitted a question and replace by the corresponding letter of the alphabet...

So the word "Take" has 4 letters becomes d
"the" has 3 letters becoming c
"length" has 6 letters becoming f

and if somebody does this with but submits a text where the first word is 19 letters long giving s, the next word 8 letters long giving h,
the next word 5 letters giving e

and continues to sherlock holmes ... then they crack the puzzle...

Dinkie's answer is close enough, but he forgot some details, so here is the complete

******************SPOILER*********************

Take the first word of a question. For example, the word "take". It has 4 letters, and its first letter is "t", i. e. 20th letter of the alphabet. That means that 20th word of the answer should begin with "d" (=4th letter). Do the same for the rest. If we again had the word which begins with "t", for example "the", then we should write "c" (length of "the") after the already written text (in this case, the 20th word should be should be "dc"). The rest is filled random, without any rules.

So, in order to get "Sherlock Holmes" as an answer, you should write a questions such that it has 8 words which begin with "a" (because 1st word is "sherlock") and with corresponding lengths, and 6 words which begin with "b" (because 2nd word is "holmes") and with corresponding lengths.

Not so hard after all, was it? :)

Thanks to everyone who participated, and once again congratulations to Buzzard who finally cracked it.
