Legal Should I be sad or relieved? Groklaw, the website that played a central role in the SCO vs. sanity case, has just announced it will close up shop on May 16 of this year. Groklaw's place in history has been secured, surely, but in recent years, the site became more and more like a relic from the past, clearly stuck in the everyone vs. Microsoft mindset of the late '90s and early 2000s. Even in today's announcement post, Groklaw shows that its time has indeed come.

That said using a gender guesser tool to try to guess someone's gender is really ignorant, if not even downright stupid.


I'm not going to speak for anything online but a professor did come up with some software a while back that was over 80% accurate at guessing gender by analyzing grammar and word choice.

This type of software is highly sought after in the law enforcement community.

Sounds nothing more than hearsay and exaggeration.
