Another way to deal with this is to turn the tables on them. It's NFL time in the US again - how many hours does someone spend watching football? Oh, you play fantasy football? Really? and that's more productive that WoW... how? Hobbies don't HAVE to be productive or interesting to other people. They're PLAY! They're a way to relax and exercise a different side of ourselves. Netflix and Blockbuster have built multi-billion dollar businesses renting people movies... where people CHOOSE to spend 2 hours or so sitting and passively watching. I like to spend a couple of hours playing WoW... Listing all of the ways a few people can abuse WoW is just counter-productive since it provides ammo to the naysayers. Yes, those folks are out there... but so what? Video games are just their current escape - they would not be well-balanced folk in any event.
