Interesting story, good work. I hope this study is repeated elsewhere. --Cspurrier - (talk) 03:21, 2 May 2008 (UTC)Reply

I agree. I'd also like to see where some of the words they cut out would have fallen - namely brand names. As the paper points out, words like "play", and "won" appear high on the lists without accompanying sport names, suggesting that things like "Playstation", "XBox" and maybe even "WoW" would show up somewhere if they hadn't been filtered.
