What a great interview --it's awesome for Wowinsider to bring awareness to players with disabilities! I think it's important to remember that in a social game like WoW, we are all part of a huge community which includes a diverse set of players. I did want to point out (for your title) that it might be more preferable to use Person First language, as in a "person with a disability" (or player with a disability) rather than saying "disabled". Wikipedia has a good article on the rationale behind it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Person-first_terminologIn working with people with disabilities and their families, I find that they greatly appreciate this terminology and I encourage anyone who is interested to look into it. Thanks again for posting this!
