Hi, thank you very much for this code that works! It was very useful to me to detect the reliability of a user when a post is published in a group, and a bot is reading it.
There is just a mistake, probably changed since the version of your post, you need to replace user_id=... with participant=...
And of course it may be necessary to manage errors when data is not as clean as we expected :-)
