This is a question I have had for a while. Do you think that you can tell someones gender by the way that they type? I mean for example if you did not know anyones names here and they did not have pictures do you think you would be able to tell who are men and who are women?

I don't think so. Mainly because the majority of people I talk with assume I'm a man by the way that I type. I'm not, I'm a woman. And I know I can't tell just by typing. Vocabulary use does differ between men and women, but gender lines and gender identification is so blurred these days that that doesn't hold up anymore. I know I have a more 'masculine' vocabulary than feminine. I also structure sentences in a typically 'masculine' way.
