I'm going to let the stats guys take it after this, but looking at this sample diagram:



you'd be telling me that -3 and 3 are "outliers". I'm saying that an outlier in this example would perhaps be -5 and 5, or -6 and 6. Even -4 and 4 round out the ends of the distribution curve, so... not outliers imo. But this is a pretty silly tangent.
