It's ridiculous to say that WoW has nothing to do with kids dropping out of school. You have kids not just dropping out of school, but dying over this game, and to dismiss all of it as "kids with no self-control" is to completely preempt any solutions that could prevent such things from happening. No one, including the FCC, is proposing banning video games or WoW, but to not be interested in the fact that there are kids who are sitting around playing WoW 24/7 instead of advancing their education. their jobs, or their relationships is shallow. This is becoming a prevalent issue in society, and the majority of your comments are utterly useless in trying to figure why people make these decisions, much less figure out any way to get them to stop.
no self control
I played WoW thru highschool, got a B average all the way around. I've had parents who have set limits on my life as well as explain why the limits are there. as I grew older, I adopted the same system of time management, and I'm currently in college.
Granted, I've quit WoW [but picked up Eve for now], but to say that the games are to blame is totally ignorant. Everyone has a choice, and IMO, all the people without the self control need to get totally absorbed into wow and die before procreating so that the gene pool can be rid of their defective genes.
