Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Goal:
Can we measure the impact of personal attacks and aggressive user talk comments on user retention?

Approach 1:
See if adding measures of experienced harassment increase the fitness of a regression model for user survival.

Approach 2:
Design a matching experiment. Take users who were attacked, match them to similar users that were not attacked, compare survival rates across both groups.
