Non-anonymized data for the paper Measuring the Longitudinal Evolution of the Online Anonymous Marketplace Ecosystem

"Non-anonymized subset of the databases used in the paper ""Measuring the Longitudinal Evolution of the Online Anonymous Marketplace Ecosystem"" (Soska and Christin, 2015). In this dataset, textual information (item name, description, or feedback text) and handles have *not* been anonymized and are thus available. We don't expect any private identifiers or other PII to be present in the data, which was collected from publicly available websites (online anonymous marketplaces) over four years (2011-2015).

For less restricted usage terms, please consider the anonymized version, which is also available without any restrictions. This non-anonymized dataset should only be requested if your project MUST rely on full textual descriptions of items and/or feedback.
