Here’s a pretty good Twitter thread about it and with more links to read:
Because I’m friends with a bunch of privacy folks on here, I want to give a PSA about an oddly worded request for info about data access procedures. It’s a Princeton study, and you are under no obligation to respond. I think it’s worthwhile to outline the study and my concerns:— Jeff Kosseff (@jkosseff) December 17, 2021
Also something to make clear:
- This is a research study being presented as a legal inquiry and not a research study
- The preamble of the email is an active lie
- There are many better ways that they could have run this study
I do not appreciate having my time wasted by this nonsense.
