What you said. WoW is its own beast and forced analogies don't accomplish much other than providing someone with more useless research for the sake of research that someone needs to finish a dissertation or thesis. The group dynamics in WoW are fascinating and there's definitely plenty of great research fodder in-game for someone who is willing to dive in and become part of the game and the community (or is already in it). There are days when I have the urge to start a research project or dig into something to really get an idea of what's happening beneath the pixelated surface; mostly, I use my knowledge of human behavior to deal with the inescapable human psychodrama that somehow gets exponentially amplified when phat lootz are involved.
