Overarching goal — Provide statistics on the spread of white-supremacist influence on Reddit. Hopefully this would attract reporter attention, which would in turn put pressure on Reddit to tamp down on racists' influence on Reddit.

Specific statistics that might be generated:

Ideally, we would be able to generate retrospective data, so we could publish immediately. If that isn't possible, then we would begin the data-collection ASAP, and then publish ~6 months later.

A nice-to-have would be to present the data in a way that makes it easy to audit, and maybe even easy to browse. This way, a reporter can quickly scan the data, and get a good idea of the quality of the statistics presented. (however, do NOT BE PERFECTIONIST about this -- the goal is to get the project DONE, and have some kind of actual impact, not to make it perfect)
