I haven't, but the description looks very good.  I notice its a recent
publication with a lot of pages.  I found the web site for the 
Psychology Department at Stockholm University, it is:

   I could not find any paper entitled "Community Noise", but I left 
messages for both Birgitta Berglund and Dr. G. Gunnarsson about our 
interest in obtaining a copy of the paper.  I'll post whatever I find 
out about it to the list.

   A search on "noise" did return a few matches, but they all seemed
to deal with extremely specific cases.  I have found this tends to be
the case with scientific papers generally.  I once checked through 
30 years of "Psychological Abstracts" at a university library and 
didn't find anything that would help me convince my boss at work to 
get the company to turn off the paging system in our work area.
   I hope "Community Noise" is a general overview of the topic written 
at a level that can be appreciated by an average adult who doesn't 
have a degree in Psychology.
