When is deception justified?

Asked by prolificus (6583points) May 1st, 2010

I have taken research/design courses in undergrad and graduate school. I understand that there are certain guidelines for using deception in research.

This article on Purdue University’s website briefly discusses ethical guidelines on the use of deceit in research.

When it comes to interacting in an online forum, when is deception justified? If it is justifiable, what should be the procedures for using deception?
