A study conducted in this way could show that a box with custom "Atheist" label on the tape is treated differently than a normal box. Tons of people think this means bias towards atheists. If the study didn't start off with a confirmation bias, a different box would have had another, maybe "christian".
Otherwise this is just a study on adding extra designations to see if they affect the shipping in the US. Still an interesting experiment, but you have to realize what it is testing.
Besides, you're asking them to read an extra word. That is a built-in delay right there.
More people need to read this, more people need to boycott EA.
I was a huge mass effect/dead space fan, but I never have nor will I buy any game on Origin. Fortunately I can just borrow the game for the console, and then never get invested in another EA franchise again.

When I first started visiting as anonymous, people seemed to have trouble reading TFA, but at least would read the summary. What's next, are people going to start posting based on keywords in the title, without reading the whole title?
Apple has really gotten into everyone's heads. "You still have the older version of the OS? You must have vulnerabilities, then! You must upgrade to iOS5! Er, Android iOS5..." security patches are made through my Android even though I'm still on Gingerbread.
When it comes to Windows, everyone mods up using XP ten years later, but it's different with smartphones somehow? If there is a problem, it's not the lack of getting a new OS like many here have suggested (while that is frustrating it's not an option), it's the lack of pushing out security updates.
I actually really liked 13th warrior and had no problem with the main character's religion. Then again that movie is how old? I wonder if one of the reasons would also be the time period the movie took place in...
My eyes! Ze goggles do nusing!
I'm with you. It's been frustrating having this opinion for so long, but it's also relieving recently. The more gay marriage is accepted the more vocal and hopefully influential this "get the gov't out of marriage" message seems to be. I don't know how people don't see that it makes both sides happy (except the zealots), the most I can figure is they don't know, or haven't thought about it.
Let's keep it going until it is fixed.
Sure, one side doesn't want the hens to be eaten by the fox. But what do the hens want?
I disagree that it makes it less interesting. It could be the easiest gun in the world to produce, if it was the first one made by a 3D printer, I'd be interested in reading about it.
