Honestly some of these researchers are getting a bit too bold with the questions they are asking. Like any sane person should know better than not to ask some of these questions.
Spoiler: Seriously, you're better off not knowing.
CW/ mentions of sexual abuse
Like what kind of delusional idiot thinks it is anywhere near okay to present a story of a sexual assault and then ask (This is not a direct quote, but close enough) "Take a few minutes to place yourself in (assault victim's name) head during their encounter with (assaulter's name). What do you imagine they thought, felt, and believed?
Then just a fucking writing box underneath it.
No "prefer not to answer" boxes. Nothing.
And the rest of the study only got even worse.
Like I was just going about my day and I'll be honest, I didn't really pay much attention to the title of the study which mentioned it was about SA. But you would think there would at least be MULTIPLE warnings about the content of the survey, especially with such sickening questions as were in this goddamn study.
Got to the end of the survey and they didn't even have a comment box and barely any resources. Just a single fucking website and phone number. And the website they linked was perhaps one of the single worst resources for mental health that you can realistically find on the web. No suicide hotline number, nothing about RAINN or the National Sexual Assault Hotline number, barely anything to really help anybody after they just sprung a survey about actual fucking sexual assault on you.
Absolute scum of the earth researcher.
Wish this wasn't on prolific so I could go and find out who the hell requested this research and tell their IRB about it, because it came out of an actual fucking university.
Needless to say, I think I am done for the day now.
EDIT: okay so I managed to reopen the survey, although these people were using their university's name on the prolific account to run their survey, the survey says that it is not being overviewed by their IRB... Also they may have put a rather small content warning in their Informed Consent Form (you know, that one form that you never read), but they didn't bother to even bold it. But they made sure to bolden that they would be rejecting submissions that miss attention checks (shows where there priorities lie, huh?)
I had two tasks open and I accidentally submitted the wrong survey code for the psychology experiment. Does anyone have the link (from their browser history) for this survey? Thanks, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Dang, @OldBoy65 is the only one who has reviewed today, so that might be your best bet, or reach out the requester directly. I have had this happen to me before, but luckily it was for a decent requester who was very understanding.
I sent OldBoy65 a message. I also messaged the requester. We'll see who I can get a hold of first. That's good to know some requesters are understanding. It's not the end of the world for $1.5, but still it adds up.
