Every time some nerd buys a warcraft character

There is nothing wrong with playing video games in your spare time, but you have to accept that's all it is a game.. Don't lose touch with the real world. I imagine some of these people can't wait to finish work to get home and sit in front of a computer screen controlling a virtual character..
This sort if thing is becoming a real unseen problem in society, when I was a child we never had Internet or even a mobile phone, if I wanted to see my friends or have some fun, I had to go out and find my friends and we would make our own games alot of which were physical actvities, we had plenty of excersise.. Alot of The children today sit at home, sending emails to their friends next door, soon maybe they will even study at home then there will be no need to even leave the house.
Don't get me wrong, today's technology is fantastic but we have to draw the line somewhere.. And as for paying 700k for a virutual property that is just crazy!!
