If she was the uploader why not write "Asaka is a woman" to help people who want to look into the matter get a lead instead of having them struggle to figure out Asaka's gender?
Assuming she is Asaka, then it would make sense that she didn't write that.
I don't think Mary is the uploader, whether she's Asaka or not. It has to be Rumi. If she's Asaka, then the reasons are simply to find the culprit(Rum), possibly because of her connection to Kouji and also because she wants to clear her name. If She's not Asaka, then I think that she's out for revenge and is looking for Asaka(who she thinks is the culprit) and is using the dying message(which she figured out by herself, because she's obviously intelligent) in her name, to lure/test people she's suspicious of.

Anyway, all we can do now is speculate and see how things turn out.
That's also a very likely possibility(like the upcoming Chef Detective). I still have that hunch that Rumi's motives are connected to Kouji's death though, and that she joined Teitan because her investigation of Kogoro, who was involved in Hotta Gaito's case(or who's Wifi IP address suggests to have visited the Kouji website), lead her to Conan.
