well, that is the problem which such studies - if you attack it with a certain stand-point (e.g. in this case wanting to find a connection) then you will find one. Statistics can always be manipulated and interpreted in a different way.
My favorite example is the finding of a linear correlation between the number of (human) births versus the amounts of storks in the area of Alsace, France (supposedly an old research article in the journal Nature). So does that imply that the fairy tale of storks delivering babies is true?

My own study shows that Craig Anderson is just seeking attention and so he published something that would cater to the fear mongering the mass media does. Expect to see him on FOX "news" shortly.

The study was about as accurate and insightful as the study on how MMO's create leaders, that one was written by a phd and was a joke, you first need to BE a leader (in real life) to understand the concept at all, you can ask and interview till your blue in the face and still not get it.

The need to be published makes these folks type some really humorous ideas trying to use the MMO industry to quantify their own theories. They need to do a study on why parents arent doing their jobs explaining to their children whats real and not real, that and keeping them away from innapropriate content in games.

But sadly the parents use the games industry to babysit their kids while they party or do whatever as raising a child is too much of a burden on their lives, and then they complain about kids running around in society that dont give a rats ass about anything but themselves, monkey see, monkey do.
