    "Up to 80 percent of certain anonymous underground forum users can be identified using linguistics, researchers say..."

    from analysis of postings on various black hat sites (perhaps here as well - as it mentions black hat seo tools)

    Nothing to worry about though as:

    "while the work appeals to law enforcements and government agencies, it is not designed to catch users out. We aren't trying to identify users..."

    (you know when theyre lying cos their mouths move)

    heres the source fyi:

    It does make sense if you think about it.

    Hmm... seems like a press release for their anonymouth software.

    I'm downloading it. In time Google will probably implement their open source software into the algorithm.
