Gender Genie -- barely better than chance!

This site promises 80% accuracy in identifying the gender of an

author when he/she inserts a sample snippet of text in the window provided. You tell it if it is fiction, nonfiction or a blog entry.

I was identified as male (incorrect). When you provide feedback you get the current success percentage. It was at 69% correct when I did it.
