Someone made an AI that predicted gender from email addresses, usernames. It went about as well as expected

Re: Gender red herrings...

Yup. You'll notice that somebody was quoted as saying people might be upset at being "targeted wrong", but nobody who's been "targeted wrong" was quoted as being upset. I'm not saying ithst that doesn't happen, but I am saying that that sort of person probably has a narcissistic-type personality disorder or something else going on because the vast majority of people don't give a fuck about adverts except insofar as what they can do to stop seeing them completely (with the exception of advertising folx, though I did say "people").
