Maybe voters on the EA forum should be blinded to the author of a post until they've voted!

Variant on this idea: I'd encourage a high status person and a low status person, both of whom regularly post on the EA Forum, to trade accounts for a period of time and see how that impacts their likes/dislikes.

Variant on that idea: No one should actually do this, but several people should talk about it, thereby making everyone paranoid about whether they're a part of a social experiment (and of course the response of the paranoid person would be to actually vote based on the content of the article).

Problem is that the participants would not be not blinded, so they would post differently. People act to play the role that society gives them.
