I'm a Social Scientist as well :-) IMO it's completely normal to
anonymize your data (like the emails used in the research). But I think
it's highly problematic to not publish (or make it available to other
researchers how request it) your data. But as I understand the current
policy of d-private and your proposal anonymized publication of list
posts is not allowed (if the original author does not agree to it).
