It is sad, pathetic, maddening and all that though.
I remember that.....and not long after hubby and i watched a documentary on SBS regarding Online games.....i was shocked that there has been around 70 deaths around the world (mostly in Korea!) related to online gaming where people get so dehydrated that they just perish at their computer tables....it's insane.

There was also this City of heroes couple (who also had 2 little kids)... who paid poor students in Romania to "level" the wife's avatar (on level 2) so she could keep up with her hubby who was on level 50.....she did this so she could care for her kids.

I feel guilty using the PC when the kids are watching TV or in bed......most of the time i'm doing work or banking while using the blue-crack!

^^ leveling online characters is quite common and its mainly people from the far east desperate enough to work the insane hours.

Its such a shocking case and from what i can gather not an isolated incident.
