[MUD-Dev] Concerning "Groups"

Just some quick feedback on your comments regarding grouping.  Are
your conclusions regarding grouping the result of actual survey data
from an unbiased sample of WoW players?  If so, what specific
questions did you ask to come up with your justification of the
results?  If not, then no amount of conjecture or anecdotal evidence
can add weight to your conclusions.  I would be especially worried
about getting an unbiased sample of players to survey - soliciting
surveys in a guild might bias towards the preferences of a specific
guild, soliciting surveys on the forums might bias towards forum
trolls.  The best person to ask about this type of thing would
probably be Nick Yee, as he conducts large scale surveys of MMOG
players (http://www.nickyee.com/daedalus/).
