I'm still worried...

You see...

People do give consent when they sign up to babble.

Yes, they do.

And I guess the 'informed' comes from their passing the multi-guess quiz.


When people are distressed they are likely to consent to all kinds of things that could be detrimental to them in the long run...

Things like... having sex with therapists... etc etc... consenting to having posts (that they post when they are at an all time low) archived indefinately... etc etc...

and thats where an ethics committee's approval can be a good safeguard... just in case someone decides to sue you for obtaining 'informed consent' from people who are vulnerable etc etc when you have made it clear that you DO understand that there can be consequences along the lines of loss of job, etc etc in some instances...

is this making any sense at all?
