Usage error: "unique and dangerous forces in addiction then countless other activities" That should read "in addiction than countless other..."Okay, now that my inner language Nazi is appeased, let me just say that l am sitting directly across the desk from a wonderful person who not only plays World of Warcraft, but is also a reporter for a radio station. One of her colleagues recently had a piece on video games, and the one that got picked on as being the home-wrecker? Yep...WoW. We were both a bit appalled at that one, but here's the kicker: the reporter had never played the game and knew nothing about it at all. In fact, the person he was interviewing apparently didn't know anything about the game at all, yet she sure ripped it apart and glorified how it destroyed her marriage!Gah...We tried to get him to hear our side of the story, that people will become addicted to anything that they find an enjoyable escape, that many people use WoW for more than just playing a game (I use it as an art medium, for example) and he stated that he would really be interested in hearing about it.Yeah, that was the last we heard from him.Double-gah...WoW is the big dog right now. In the 70s and 80s, it was Dungeons & Dragons. In the 50s & 60s? Rock 'n' Roll. 40s? Radio. 20s? Talkies. Yeah, it's always something.
