New Gamer Study LF Volunteers

I got an email yesterday asking for help in publicizing a new study focusing on WoW players. I checked out their web site and they claim to be focusing on gaming as a way of dealing with stress. Assuming this is accurate, it would be nice to see more positive depictions of the gaming community in the media. You guys can make up your own mind, but I thought I'd go ahead and post it since it appears to be legit from my cursory check. Here's the blurb they sent me:

Hello Everyone!

I’m looking for volunteers for a study on World of Warcraft players. I’m
interested in how WOW helps people regulate stress. I value your time and am
conducting a random lottery drawing and will be giving out 5 free 60-day game
time cards. There will be a limit of one game card per winner. In order to be
eligible, you must be 18 years or older and currently play WOW. The survey takes
20-25 minutes.

For information about the study, or to volunteer go to:

Please contact me if you would like additional information about the study: Happy gaming!
