There were a couple papers that were published, I think, where Dr Bob quoted posters comments. Examples of how people in the community could be helpful to one another, I think. That sort of thing. He referenced it to their posting name.

An observational study is typically thought to require less in the way of permissions than an interventional study.

Dr Bob observes us...

And... We accept that we give him permission to use our posts as he wishes when we sign up to the boards in the very first place.

I think these boards are more likely to provide anonymity to people than the significant majority of other things out there. I haven't provided my credit card details to this site. I haven't provided my phone number. I haven't given this site my address.

I personally trust Dr Bob. Because I've read some of his research stuff and read what he's had to say over the years and seen how he's interacted with other posters.

There is a ridiculous amount of complete and utter b*llsh*t out there.

The work in medical / internet ethics that Bob did however many years ago is leaps and bounds ahead of anything I've read before or since.

He's not an idiot. Bonus.

He could have insisted on google ads and so on. He could have required we give him our credit card details. He could have required a donation from us all and so on...

But he didn't... Because people really didn't seem to want those things.

And his personal bank account would have taken a hit because of it.

Only for posters to go on and provide all that to countless other websites and forums with such obviously less altruistic intention. Facebook and the like.

This doesn't address your concern, really.

The fact that there is so much worse out there to worry about doesn't make it any better...

But he warned us something of what was to come...

Thereby making it so??


There's the likely future..

Invest accordinly.
