There are children starving to death in the world... human rights being stomped on in different parts of the world... animal species dying out due to pollution... oil spills... radiation leakages...But yeah... some people exploited a video game so lets get all upset.Wow.... just wow....

This is a WoW blog, though, not a help the world blog. People here care about WoW (which is a video game). Sure, you can argue that some people care about it too much, but people who live in privilege generally have different priorities than people who don't. And yes, maybe there's something inherently "wrong" about that, but people are people, and people in wealthy countries care about more "frivolous" things than people in poorer countries, because they have the time, money and resources to.

That's a fairly bad measuring stick. By that logic, complaining about anything, ever, that isn't as serious as starving children makes me a bad person.I lost my job to downsizing almost 2 years ago and have been unable to find work. That's not as serious as starving to death as a child. Since I'm not starving to death, it's not even in the ballpark.But, I don't feel crappy for complaining about it when it happened. Or complaining about it right now.On a long enough timeline, all importance drops to zero. It's all an infinitesimal speck on the tiniest flicker of time in the endless eons that make up the history of the universe, in a thousand years noone will care about any slight little or big thing that happens now.As long as you realize, at the end of the day, what's important and what isn't, complain away. There's much worse things you could be doing.

Shouldn't you be cancelling your WoW subscription and internet service to you can pay those monthly fees to charities? Just sayin'.

Meh... having a bad day. Sometimes it just really hits me how intense people can get over a game. I'm all for debate and discussion, but when people get all heated up, that's where I stop 'getting it' and just shake my head.Perspective is all I'm saying.Now excuse me, but I have horde to slaughter in AV this weekend!
