DrMrLordX writes "It looks like another columnist has taken aim at WoW addiction. Hickman's article has drawn quite a bit of criticism since word of its existance spread throughout a number of WoW guilds. It just so happens that the article originally appeared in The Pulse which is a weekly paper in competition with The Enigma, a paper for which I write on a weekly basis. I have offered a different viewpoint on MMORPG addiction which I felt obligated to do, considering how long ago I started playing the darn things (UO pre-alpha . . . the one that came before the E3 pre-alpha)."
