Well seriously some dork crying because WoW isn't accepted in the mainstream being played by normal people doesn't really help any. Sure, there are certainly some special cases, but for the most part, this game is NOT healthy for people. They spend more time playingthis than most other "hobbies" they might have had. They're looking at a computer screen the whole time, even if they're playing with their significant other, if this is how they're finding "quality time" with each other then they are far from normal."since there are lot more players like that" - HTH would you know? In the various guilds on various I've been in, the pictures I've seen of members, the pictures posted from WoW groups on Meetup.com, and pictures posted from fan conventions, there are NOT a lot more normal, healthy people playing this game that you might like to think.If the headline is about people playing the game in a "healthy' way, then it goes on to talk about how his wife was forced to wait in labor while he played WoW, I think that is a serious contradiction and a SHINING example of the neglect of real-life responsibilities due to their passion for a fantasy game.The excessive work in a virtual world that people put into it is such a sad waste of time that has ruined marriages, jobs and in some cases, people's health. We need fewer WoW fanboi bloggers writing for this silly site.

I fully agree. I'd count myself among the more "normal" people who play WoW. And though I'm mostly just a casual player, it makes me ashamed to admit to other people that I do play the game, because they can only think of weirdo's like these when anyone mentioned WoW.Seriously, it's a great game, it's fun and all that, but it's not really a normal social activity. If you met your friends in WoW or whatever, that's cool - just go out with them sometime and experience the real world.
