    most guys my age that I know play Madden, FIFA and other sports games. You could not get near the xbox in the mess room during my time in the Army! Maybe your just a little older and you dont get it, kind of like my grandfather and the Beatles.

    In Eve Online our common insult is Go Back to WoW, since there is a culture of you better suck it up and die in Eve that seems missing from other MMOs.

    Ever think that might just be one of our problems, Higgins?

    Probably. Then again, I have no interest in being an unemployed, 30+ year old who has to have his wife pay the bills because he's such a worthless waste of flesh and oxygen that video games, cartoons, the Sci-fi channel and anime are the only things he cares about. I lived with that situation for more than a few years, and my former roommate is by no means the only situation of that sort that I've seen directly.

    Re: Maine GOP attack Dem for playing World of Warcraft!

    There must be some ethical Republicans but when we see silly attacks like the one noted in this thread on Maine legislature candidate Colleen Lachowicz and then read about yet another Republican actually violating the law during this campaign year, I wonder why the Republicans with ethics are so unwilling to denounce their bad compatriots. (see last sentence, the one bolded)

    from the Portland (ME) Press-Herald
    While the Maine political world was having fun with a legislative candidate who lives an active fantasy life in the online game "World of Warcraft," another legislative candidate has been charged with something much less funny.
    (. . .)

    But in Senate District 32, Republican incumbent Nichi Farnham is accused of being the beneficiary of $73,000 in negative ads against her opponent from a political action committee that Farnham controls. The problem is that as a Clean Election candidate, she is not permitted to raise outside funds for her campaign. Democrats have filed a formal complaint and are preparing to ask the Maine Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices to hold an immediate hearing on the issue. Out of fairness to the Democrats, Farnham and the people of the district, it's the only fair thing to do.

    Due to an unfortunate loophole in the Clean Election Act, Farnham is allowed to raise money through a leadership PAC, even though as a publicly funded candidate, she is not supposed to spend it on her own race. Republican officials say she had no knowledge of the expenditure, but the PAC's filing identifies her as one of two "primary fundraisers and decision makers."
    That bolded bit reminds me of something . . . hmmm, what was it? Oh yeah, SEC filings that identified Romney as "Chairman, CEO and sole stock-holder" of some company that he supposedly had left years earlier.

    Update:
    Later, James Cote, a consultant for the Maine Senate Republican Majority PAC, issued a statement saying that Farnham's involvement with the group was an "administrative error." Cote said he had documents to prove that Farnham was not involved with the PAC.

    Hold on stop the presses you met someone who was a looser better paint everyone who plays games as one just to be sure we get our stereotype quota in for the day.

    Sean Smith died in the Bengazi attack, I knew him as Vile Rat a top person in Goonswarm Federation, I never liked the goons back when we were.both in delve I had plenty of run ins with them, but Sean Smith was a loyal soldier for this country who died fighting terrorists in Libya but go ahead attack him for playing video games, he did more for this country than any of us ever did.

    Adam is by no means the only one I know. He's simply the most dramatic and obvious example of what I'm talking about. This is a 37 year old with an education in the culinary arts and a small business degree who hasn't held a paying job in more than a decade. He may be the extreme case, but this is the guy who was PO'ed on 9/11/01 because coverage of the WTC disaster had pre-empted his CARTOONS!!!!!!!
