Hi there - I can understand your perspective, but this guy's wife supports him. I can only assume that at some point, if he were capable of getting outside, she would be the first one to encourage him.My mother is physically disabled, and struggles with a lot of things. Her choices are to lay in bed or sit in a chair (when she is physically able to). Believe me - being trapped inside your home might be fun for the first week - maybe three. But nobody gets fulfillment or would prefer to stay inside their home, separated from all RL social interaction if they could choose otherwise.For people with disabilities, I think WoW can be a great thing. When possible, I do think efforts should be made to not be so dependent on it - but when it's that or starting at a TV screen, I'd rather someone do something that makes them think, interact, and socialize.
