FCC Comissioner: World of Warcraft causes college dropouts {WoW}

Dec 11th 2008 3:33PM And THIS is the kind of crap that led me to quit the republican party.

You know what causes people to quit college? LIFE. The same crap that causes people to quit jobs or get divorced or whatever.

Of all the people I know who dropped out of college, all were either girls who got preggers and moved back home OR people who didn't go to class and failed out. Of the last group, almost all of those kids drank every damn day and didn't have the motivation to get off their butt and get to class.

Me? I used to drink and smoke, uhh, felweed, constantly, and take the occasional ghost mushroom...and you know what? I graduated with a 3.4, wrote a successful regular newspaper column and got in to grad school.

All this crap about video games ruining lives is just that -- crap. There are a lot of miserable, lonely, depressed people out there. That a lot of them are college age is not surprising. That a lot of those depressed college age kids find themselves more interested in Azeroth than Algebra is not really surprising either. College success takes more than just intelligence -- you have to work hard. Depressed, lonely 20-somethings are not really going to have the wherewithall to give that effort, and will likely flunk out.

To blame their individual failures on warcraft is borderline retarded.

Can anyone fill me in on what's going on? Is the mail fixed? Are the servers back up? Did they fix the free PvP gear issue?
