[Repost] Questions about Stylometry

I posted earlier, but as I just created this new reddit account my post was temporarily auto-removed by a bot.

I’ve heard that with Machine Learning becoming a mainstream product, it’s getting easier to detect natural language signatures from anonymous online users.

A natural language signature is like a fingerprint that can be detected from the way you construct sentences and the pace at which you write and speak.

What tools are available to hide our natural language signature?

Does TensorFlow have any machine learning libraries built to hide your natural language signature?

Thoughts on this (laptop) setup?

Component Implementation
x86 ISA Hardware ASUS KGPE-D16 (Peripherals removed)
CPU Opteron 6287SE, 6284SE, or 6282SE (anti-Spectre)
Bootloader GRUB2
Firmware/BIOS Libreboot
Preparation to OS Qubreboot modifications
OS Live Qubes (USB) with AppVM traffic restricted
Virtual OS Whonix running on top
Browser Tor w/ JS disabled
Network Tor w/ DNSCrypt
Router Any one of these, LibreCMC-enabled

Using self-hosted services beyond that, or else secure clients (for chat, it would be something like Gajim, Pidgin, Riot, Signal, etc., depending on need)

I’m required to use Google mail for work – wha…

My employer uses the Google Mail business suite, and I need to access email on my mobile.

Of course, I am concerned about Google tracking me. I am less concerned about the content of the emails I send/receive as there’s nothing I can do about that (except for resigning).

We are currently negotiating a separate company phone, which I can leave in the office overnight.

In the meantime what’s the best option for sending/receiving Google Mail on my existing iPhone? I was thinking of just using Apple Mail and setting up an IMAP connection, so Google will only see my VPN’s IP address.

Are there any better options?
