I think you may have misunderstood my addressing the meme thing: I was relating it to confirmation bias in that I think people perceive the aggregate "goodness" of their PuG runs as much lower than they actually were because they are predisposed to remember the bad ones (i.e. the meme primed them to be pessimistic, and thus pass on that pessimism to others).I would really love to see that study. I think it could be a very interesting one for a psych student, as I believe that the study of confirmation bias/memes would be right up someone's alley.I am a programmer, so I immediately thought of making an addon to prompt people to rate their experience after each PuG... I have considered making one in the past, so maybe I will. A quick google search did turn this up, though it seems to be more targetted at individual player ratings rather than overall experience (though you could presumably get some data from it): http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/grouper
