the main aim is stated:
To use the Black Flag Café online forum to identify and evaluate the
factors that influence tourists to visit dangerous places and to ascertain
the perceived benefits for those tourists of travelling to dangerous places.
which seems at best tangential to the data collection methodology and "hot threads/hot posters" identifications. but whatever her chair ok-ed it so what do i know. overall the ethnographic feel of it is pretty good. i enjoyed the lit review cuz that it's a field of scholarly work that i have literally never cracked open even an article on. and hopefully if some of you ppl ever read it you will be mildly insulted/annoyed.
somewhere in it, it acknowledges forum members will at least be provided a copy of major research findings or something. i haven't seen that thread yet, but maybe i missed it.
