Ed. note: so, if your word processor frustrates you , does that lead to violence too?

Not so much "does", perhaps, as "could". From my understanding of the article, it's entirely possible. In the article Richard Ryan, co-author of the study, is said to state, "That experience is not unique to gaming", leaving wide open the possibility suggested above. In short, one could simply say frustration leads to aggression. Hardly surprising, really, to anyone who's experience frustration and hardly unique to video games.

Ooof ... s/experience/experienced. I'd've perhaps caught that if I'd previewed, but for some reason I am unable to preview in Firefox. I get a "record not found - table [comment] id [0]".
