Most sites had moderators, serving mainly to screen obscene posts and curtail or ban so-called ‘AIDS dissidents/denialists’ (who often annoyed other posters with their declarations rejecting the link between HIV and AIDS, and their calls to stop practising safer sex or taking AIDS medication.) ‘Ask the expert’-type sites were excluded as unsuited to the focus on support groups. The different lists began at various points. In most cases, the lists were examined from the beginning of archived posts until the close of data collection in the autumn of 2004.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
