Ethics of viewing site as user
Is it ethical for ReligionAndPublicLife.org staff to view the site as a user? Yes, because user switching is an "Ethical Open Source" practice as defined by The Ethical Source Definition (ESD):
- It benefits the user and community.
- It puts accessibility first.
- It prioritizes user safety and security.
- It protects user privacy.
Overall, we may view the site as the user to better understand the user experience and test the efficacy of the platform.
