Why? I couldn't imagine why someone would do that. I couldn't imagine why someone would engineer a computer virus either but lots of people do it. I do know that when you have a study that is made up of data from sources you can't prove to be accurate then you create doubt. When I write reports the last thing I want is to have any doubt about the quality and accuracy of my data. Anyway you cut it Ed you don't know where the sample came from because you didn't collect it yourself. Not only do you not know where the sample was taken but you don't even know who collected the sample because it was posted on the internet. Of course everyone has their own methods, I am very strict when it comes to data collection and I will not record data that I am not 100% accurate on. Have you been involved in any field studies or field data collection?

:Why would anyone be dishonest about this sort of thing? If they are willing to go to the trouble of peeling the dead snake off the road, carrying it home, contacting this person, packaging it and mailing it out, I can't see the personal gain unless it is another researcher working on the same project.
