I must put some time aside to try Glitch. I was attracted by it's cuteness and quirkiness (even the trailer is different) and now I find it has nicer people in it as well!

A few years ago I lived on a busy thoroughfare in a large urban environment. Distracted one day, I left my wallet and keys on the front walk near the public sidewalk. When I came back, there was a man standing there guarding them. He said he tried the door but got no answer, so he waited, figuring I'd be back looking for them soon.

I'm reminded of this magic trick/social experiment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxYCh_p2Mjs

Not all people in Glitch are so nice. I put out drinks for my neighbors, outside their doors, and as I put the last one down, someone came in and picked all of them up. She was level 30 so it wasn't like she didn't know better or even need them. Still, the majority of people I've bumped into there are really nice.

It's unreasonable to base any form of conclusion on a test population of just two people.

It may even be the case that a significant number of players might not have even known you could take the diamond. There are all sorts of issues here that mean any conclusion is worthless. You'd have to conduct the experiment on a far wider scale. I'd suggest running comparative experiments across other virtual environments too.

A result without statistical rigor is not necessarily a result without meaning.

Luck of the draw.

Everywhere you go you will find good people and bad people.

Sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you don't.

Only real conclusion you can draw is that, well...

Everywhere you go you will find good people and bad people.

Sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you don't.

When you have the samplesize up to 200 or more, let us know. 2 people is much too tiny to base any sort of conclusions.
