As some of you might know, or not know, for the past year I have been finishing my thesis paper for my psychology degree, on cultural cognative mindsets, what factors are involved in such cultures and what issues are needed to implement certain behaviours.

Since I am not made of money and could not afford to fly around the world, I had to choose communities that would consist of similar mindset people that was similar to a cultural heritage.I had chosen car fanatical communities, in my belief that it shares many similarites to a cultural society and have joined several different clubs, i.e 350z, rx-7, celica, tt's, old classics and Supra, to test out to what length are members passionate about their cars and to what boundaries do their certain emotional traits extend to.

With great results I am able to finish off my paper, although my limitation was that the community is not a cultural society in a sense of language interaction, I believe I am able to support my paper through the many similarities that are shared when culture is juxstoposed with passionate societies.

May I say a big thankyou to all who participated in my threads, yes the 350z is not mine it was a picture of pistonheads nor was the challenge of 3k real, but these factors needed to be introduced so that I could examine to the best of my abilities certain factors of community cognative mindsets. (you should see the threads that I posted on the other sites real pissed of Evo members lol.):d

MY APOLOGIES IF I HAVE UPSET ANYONE

I am studying at Brighton university, and I must say this Site has the best membership and passionate members by far.

Really makes me want to buy a Supra when I finish paying of my student loans.

If anybody would like a copy of my paper once it has finished I would be more than happy to email them a copy.

Thanks again for everybodies participation and again sorry for any inconvenience caused especially to LEWIS, my sincere apologies for my comments.

All the best to everybody and keep up the passion :) :) :) :) :)

I don't know about anyone else, but I feel quite annoyed by this. So all this was a complete load of bollocks to satisfy your thesis? Might I suggest that the next time you need "white mice" for your research you piss off somewhere else and annoy other car sites.

Hi, this really i the end of my experiment, thankyou once again, and sorry for those who have taken offence to my research, If I had quoted your comments then by law I would be overstepping the mark as it were, but I assure you no quotations were copied into my paper, I shall get the threads from the other forums I will have to give you my username and password but not sure of the security of this as my card and home info. may be exposed.

Please send me your email addresses and I will be more than happy to email you across the paper, it is due the 2nd of July.

Once again apologies for thoses who feel betrayed, it was the only way to get the results I needed if I had prewarned everybody, the results would of been artificial as true responses would be contaminated by the pre knowledge of its fictional status.

To Some extent however Evo members were more aggresive with regards to Supra owners than 350z... interestingly enough

We've had it before. No problems with sharing links - we could be members on other forums that's the idea of them, free information.

Hi Usernames were different on each site as did not want someone to recognise the experiement as I had to confess on each site.

Please feel free with all your comments, The final paper will not have any quotation copied as this is an infringment all it will have are the different behavioural or similar behavioural patterns each club presented. However the paper is only 18,000 words long the complexity of members status which could influence their response. My paper will not be an exact science due to its limation of the unknown characters and their experience (deontological stance) which structure their whole view point. The paper will merely acknowledge very basic principles of universal community characteristics. I had to examin communities who hold what we class a grade 7 in passional beliefs

tbourner

Still waiting for lancer-evo to validate my registration but lancerregister doesn't have anything on it related to this.

So....if you have confessed on each site then a search on "experiment", "brighton uni" etc etc WILL come up with a post explaining the situation will it?

Mate, you lied, you came in the big man and left the midget with herpes, I would have more respect for you if you said "I'm full of shit, I made it up but you lot figured it out".

If you're for real, I can't think in what sense you have obtained informed consent for your study. Did you go for presumptive consent or not bother at all?

Also, you will be aware that each instance of the use of deception: (a) decreases the pool of genuinely naive participants available for research (increasing demand characteristics for everyone else) by increasing overall suspicion of psychologists, and (b) reinforces widely held stereotypes of psychologists forged in the 1960s and 1970s through the excesses of Social Influence researchers. Therefore deception, like antibiotics, should be used sparingly, and not for every candy-ass undergraduate project that comes along.

Nevertheless, again assuming that you are for real, good luck with your degree.

Please learn to spell 'cognitive' (unless 'cognative' is some abstruse term I've never come across), as it hurts my eyes.

I don't entirely understand why you would even need to make false posts if you really needed to do this study. Surely there are enough threads on here to see how the pack behaves?

Thankyou for your comments Richard is my pseudo name, I was a shot girl for an agency and did alot of nights at Creations nightclub my first year at university, never again if guys arent gay around here they just become pricks and try and grab you thinking thats what you like. Tannhauser thankyou for your comments but if names are not listed in the thesis then such a research can take place. Also posing as male in comparison to female derives completely opposite responses, hence the importance to act as a male on this particular site. How else can I retrieve a natural response?

Interesting summary michael, thankyou.

I'm interested why "shirokai" didn't approach the admin here and run past his/her idea and seek any form of consent before collecting data for his/her thesis. At the least it would have been polite to do so and wouldn't have impacted on the intergrity or impartiality of the collected data or its use.

Instead, the methodology used to collect the data, in my opinion lacked any form of integrity and also diminishes any credibility because the data or behaviours collected were done so under a false pretence.

I also note, that the posting style was not made in an objective manner, but rather in a way to provoke certain, almost expected or anticipated behaviours , because it would be obvious to a person of Sun reader intelligence (no offence intended to those that do) that to disrespect or even insult the object of an enthusiasts passion, such as belonging to a collective or a certain marque of car, is going to provoke those responses.

I'm trying my hardest to remain openminded, however tonight I'm feeling rather beligerent towards you, as you have, sought deliberately to visit this forum, with the sole intention to provoke, annoy and insult our members under the pretence of collection data for a thesis.

So therefore, it is, without any regret whatsover, that I ban you. There are ways of contacting the club, if you feel unfairly or harshly treated, but I expect that you have probably factored that in to your thesis as an expected response from the forum moderators once you had been discovered.

I may however be wrong. I have known to be wrong in the past, and I'm open enough to admit that. Perhaps you could send your thesis when submitted to us via the contact us button on the front page.

Bye.
