Fun little tool to fiddle with. Cool the heels of your local script

************************************************************************ - Statistical E-mail & Blog Profiling

Darknet spilled these bits on October 3rd 2007 @ 8:36 pm

This is a cool tool I found recently amongst all the flame wars in the
security mailing lists, someone developed this tool to profile the
semantics of text.

Basically you pump in a load of e-mails from a known source, then
compare it to the anonymous socks and see what probability it is that
they are the same person based on the text. You can do the same thing
with blogs, not just e-mail!
. . .

This is version 1.0 of Unmask - a python script that attempts to
unmask anonymous text by matching its statistical properties against
someone else's text with a known identity.

Other uses include determining "area of origin",gender,age,
occupation, sexual orientation, etc from text's statistical
properties. Any decision YOU can make against an unknown author,
Unmask will also make. Of course, it may be less or more accurate than
your determination.

You should probably fiddle with it as you go, to make it work on
whatever sample set you have, before using it in the wild.
