Default Font Impersonators

I'm trying to cull fonts that are obvious knockoffs--really so little difference, if any, as to be negligible. These are mainly TT fonts, where the name is changed to protect the innocent, or something like that.

I know KT has talked about good fonts, bad knockoffs, but I don't know how I figure out which font is good, which one is less good. What do we do to test them--meaning a simple test any idiot can perform to see which font sets/prints better than another. What do we look for? Is there any way to decide that doesn't take 30 years of experience?
