Due to recent events I think I need to explain it once more:
If you are using anonymising services, no matter if it's AN.ON, the CCC Anonymizer or The Onion Router you have to watch your language! Especially if you want to use figures of speech.
Even more specific: You can not just take a german figure of speech and translate it literally into English. This just doesn't work most of the time. And if you do it anyway, people can figure out that you are from Germany.
If you want to use them anyway, look up their proper translations first. There are lists of translations online (for example: University Marburg (A-K) (L-Z)).
On the other hand, you can of course do it to confuse people into thinking that you are from Germany when you actually are not. This requires practice, of course.
