Post The Booktalk Prison experiment
How about we have the Moderators exert total control over the common members and see how we all spiral down into evil behavior?

The Mods can, but are not limited to:

1) Place emoticons throughout our posts at will
2) Arbitrarily delete posts
3) Edit our post and insert lines of text that we have not written
4) Ban members
5) Post naked pictures of members (you KNOW they are out there somewhere)
6) Change our user names to numbers

Should be fun! lol

Mr. P.

Not enough participants and not enough time. There is a pretty large temporal gap between interactions so I don't think it'd work.

A nice idea though. I think you'll find a handful of examples out there on the net of this already. Though they aren't really experiments.
