Linguistics Identifies Anonymous Users 215

mask.of.sanity writes "Researchers have examined writing styles to identify previously anonymous carders and hackers operating on underground forums. Up to 80 percent of users who wrote at least 5000 words across their posts could be identified using linguistic techniques. Techniques such as stylometric analysis were used to track users who posted across different forums, and could even be used to unveil authors of thesis papers or blogs who had taken to underground networks."

    Well your left handed with your frequent use of left keys.
    You have small hands given the fact that you were able to press w with out pressing e immediately.
    The fact that you have said you look forward to our anonymous overlords or a Beowulf cluster of AC means your reasonably intelligent for Slashdot.
    Your not aggressively hassling the editor, previous poster, or the writer. Signifying your female.
    You have too much time on your hands posting on Slashdot.

    Your Oprah.
