Locating research sources on Reddit

This past year I’ve been working on how to treat online sources in research reports. When researchers disguise their sources, is it effective or are their sources at risk at being located? What can we do to increase the efficacy of disguise?

I’ve published a draft on the first question (with more are in the pipeline) and am providing a tool toward the second.

The best way researchers can ensure their quotes are disguised is to check for themselves. They can do so with reddit-search.py. The video below shows it finding a quote on three search engines and opening those queries in a web browser.
