I am embarrassed and aggrieved that the editors felt the need to insert a Harry Potter reference in the title of my article.

Even if it IS a Harry Potter refference, the word actually conveys what some of us feel towards the people who don't play WoW. That they just don't get it, no matter how much we explain.

"muggle" is a perfectly cromulent word.

Muggle has actually become a common term to refer to anyone who is not "in the know" for an activity. It's used for nearly everything now to describe people who wouldn't get the inner workings, terminology and jokes.

If it makes you feel better, muggle has been used in more things since Harry Potter. Obviously, that's where it started, but it's used in several things now.In Geocaching, anyone who isn't a Geocacher is a muggle. So if you go looking for a Geocache, you have to be careful if it's in public, because of all the "muggles" that might be around.Google Geocaching if you don't know what it is.
