Azizi, are you using the term "collected" to refer to adult recollections, and including that process when you use the term "research"? How much of your research is based on that type of collecting?

I'm familiar with people using DT studies and thread discussions about songs as a place to get leads to DO research, but I would be surprised if serious researchers considered the posts of one or two threads a relevant sample. I would think there would be a number of issues, speaking in tgerms of solid statistical measurement.
