My name is KILLEREGO and I am an undergrad student at Georgia Tech. My classmates and I are currently taking Design of Online Communities for Computer Science. We have come here to study the CB community and will be writing a research paper at the end of this semester based on our observations. We will be using observations of people we get on this website as well as interviews with people that volunteer to be interviewed to gather our information. Anyone who wishes to opt out of participation is more than welcome to. We will also not use any information from chat or other transient communication for our project unless that person specifically gives consent for us to use that information.
If anyone has any questions or concerns, please either chatmail us or post to this thread and we will be more than happy to answer or discuss anything with you.
Also, if you specifically wish to be opted out, please contact any of us and we will make sure not to include anything about you in the paper.
The other people in my group should be responding to this shortly and identfying themselves. We are also all members of the GTResearcher clan.
