What is in a user name?
Ok so ran into an interesting study conducted on LoL players regarding player names and what that indicates about them based on registration data which was made anonymous and report/honor data associated with that account.  the reading is heavy going for me but figured some here might be interested

Re: What is in a user name?
Well, the results in the summary don't sound all that suprising ... but then again their data on the correlation betwen anti-social behavior and user-names that have the same attribute is a bit narrow (NA servers only, run through an english-only filter)

But a good find, thank you for sharing
"When you work with water, you have to know and respect it. When you labour to subdue it, you have to understand that one day it may rise up and turn all your labours into nothing. For what is water, which seeks to make all things level, which has no taste or colour of its own, but a liquid form of Nothing?" - Graham Swift, Waterland
