Check out my new paper documents how online collaboration platforms imagine anonymous users in ways that are strikingly differently than anonymous users see themselves. Paper was led by Nora McDonald w/ Rachel Greenstadt and Andrea Forte. blog.communitydata.science/new

One potential source of this difference is that while many online communities set norms about anonymous participation openly, the people who are blocked/deterred by privacy concerns that are incompatible w/ the status quo are simply never heard.
