    Firstly, thank you to everyone else who responded after I left earlier today. It's morning now where I am, and unfortunately I need sleep like everyone else. We do appreciate the honesty and willingness to discuss these issues here, it's already helped us to clarify certain issues and possible faults in the parameters for our project.









    I also wouldn't normally respond to someone like yourself, but you make a major false statement and a number of assumptions that beg to be addressed. First, and most importantly, I never asked for specifics about anyones drug habits or for details of what medications that a person takes. That information was volunteered by one person, and I responded with another question, still without asking for details. Frankly, that information is irrelevant to what we are hoping to investigate, it only arose as an issue after reviewing posts on this forum and elsewhere, not before.

    If you want to accuse every requester, or anyone else for that matter, who is new here, or comes here for information or advise of being a 'troll', then don't be surprised when we don't come back or are less than willing to discuss issues with you.

    No valid point was made in my opinion by the previous poster. Demanding extra compensation for confidentiality when I hadn't even mentioned compensation yet is presumptuous, and the tone in which the demand was made was arrogant. We can agree to disagree, and leave it at that. I think you, as well as this other person, have a fundamental misunderstanding of the (potential) relationship that is being proposed. You are not the boss, unfortunately. I'm sure you understand.


    Anyway, I will try to be here tomorrow, although it is the weekend, to discuss the project in more detail. I apologize for the necessary confusion, but as this is a scientific study, as well as a commercial one, I'm sure you can forgive me for being less than forthcoming thus far.

    Regards,


    Suzanne

    I'm an advocate for mental health issues - I'm very open about what is wrong with me and how it is treated. Not enough people are: there is still serious stigma attached to mental health problems, and it causes lots of really sick people to suffer and very often to attempt to self medicate with street drugs.
    Those of us who care about this state of affairs make a point of talking about our problems openly, in the hope that it will encourage others who are suffering to become more open about their own problems.
    I am not ashamed of what is wrong with me, and I don't really consider the information to be private. I have shared a lot more in regards to my illness on other public fora and will no doubt do so again in the future. Anyone that would discriminate or attempt to discriminate against me due to my mental health can...perform an anatomically improbable act.

    Good catch Rob. I must say she is getting slyer. Frankie Stein didn't fool me, but "Suzanne" was cleverer. She still has that phony self righteous attitude and false indignation that trip her up.

    Exactly. That is why the troll smell permeated her posts. The chick hates, but hates to get called out...

    Look if one is on drugs the last thing they are going to worry about is doing Mturk work. They wouldn't be able to focus cause they usually are looking for ways to get the next drug quicker and the 0.01-\3.00 HiTs take too long. They would rather do B&E's to get the money. No I am not doing drugs or anything like that never have and never will. I get high off of life! A lot of us would be able to committ long term and a confidentiality agreement like oscar smith has would work.

    anonymous requester needs to learn something about drug addicts!

    To Anonymous Requester!



    You did ask for specifics as you say you didn't. You asked how it affected the person! this is really none of your business how it affected her if she is on them or not! It keeps her functioning to do the work is what matters. If she is depressed enough she won't want to do the work. Maybe you need to be educated on Depression:

    ccording to the National Institute of Mental Health, symptoms of depression may include the following:

    Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions
    Fatigue and decreased energy
    Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness
    Feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism
    Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping
    Irritability, restlessness
    Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, including sex
    Overeating or appetite loss
    Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment
    Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings
    Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts


    If she is depressed she looses interest. Become educated first and foremost before you assume that someone who is depressed can't do the work, they wouldn't want to do the work in a deep major depression. Please stop trolling here. You have really irked people and you are showing how ignorant you really are. A true drug addict wouldn't be on here. They worry about getting the next Hit, and they want to get money quicker than Mturk. The little bit we earn here takes way too long for a true drug addict. You would have to work all day and all night and non stop to get enough in some cases. Please, stop making an ass out of u and me. Assume!

    Sorry Andy about my language but I don't have time for the ignorance of this anonymous requester. Shady with a name like that can't identify anything to us about anything. I guess I won't be doing their HITs since I call it as I see it with this fake requester. Yep, you heard me correctly called them fake! Don't step on anyone's toes unless you are ready to stepped on, chewed up, and stepped on. Most of us are very intelligent individuals, cause a common person can't do this. You have to have patience to do some of the tedious tasks we do. The economy sucks this is why we are on here doing this and some of us implement our regular income cause we like extra cash in our pockets, but not to deal with ignorant requesters.

    I am going back in my corner to hide now! Sorry Andy! Please don't ban me from the forum. I am usually quiet and behaved!

    Heh. This is all very interesting!

    I specifically didn't feel any obligation to answer her about my personal drug/alcohol use. I mean, seriously, in IRL in the US, employers have to be very careful about asking you that. Online isn't any different.

    You are so right.

    This lady has other issues and agendas... Her whole belittling charade of the Requester is such a power-trippy kind of sick way of attracting attention and interest.

    I just read this through a second time more clearly and I spotted a troll flag.. I am a researcher in my field and anyone who is doing any kind of scientific research knows to never put the topic out to the public as it skews results, plain and simple. DUH.

    That was NOT a requester... Just a troll - a turd, messing up our sandbox!

    No worries!
