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.

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.
