List of Figures

Figure 1: 'Plot of top words' contribution to positive, negative sentiment in all posts

Figure 2: T-SNE graph of the wordvector space 'forsale - notforsale'

Figure 3: Exploring the vector space defined by binary pairs, 'good'-'bad', 'for sale'-'not for sale’. Hints of various dynamics at play can be viewed in contrasting, but related, terms e.g. as with 'acrylic painting' falling in negative space and 'skull decor' falling in positive space. This might be a glimpse into the taste or aesthetic of those who create skull-related art, which may be important for understanding what creates the taste and demand for human remains themselves.
