Am I the only one here paranoid enough to wonder if the OP's *actual* paper was outlining how a gaming community would react to something negative about their chosen obsession? Maybe he could troll other forums too? I know slashdot has some real nerdholes in it.
I notice the replies are about half brutal attacks:
"Show me the proof!"
"Your spelling makes you look dumb!"
"Your paper sucks!"
"You don't know how to run an experiment!"
Then the other half are sarcastic comments followed by random animal noises.
