What I said was the truth. I didn't judge anyone. I think you need to look up each of these words and ponder on their real meanings. The first person blamed the game for ruining his/her marriage. The game is not a sentient responsible being. It is an activity. The person behind the activity controls the activity, not the other way around. The world is full of people who blame everything and everyone else but themselves. This is a lack of responsibility and accountability. Playing a game so much it causes a divorce is without question the fault of the person playing the game, not the game.
It's true that some people found the game too hard and they complained constantly in game and on the forums. The rest of us enjoyed playing and got sick of the whining. These people wanted to reach the pinnacle with little to no resistance. That is a fact. I did not say the person posting here was one of them. Nor did I insinuate it. I shared my experiences as they did. Immature people who wanted to play a god in game and win just because they logged in. It didn't work that way and they whined, a lot.
I posted my experiences. Are you intolerant of opposing experiences? I met my wife in EQ. The mother of our three children and a fantastic woman. I didn't get divorced "because of a/the game, I got married. Even though we both played, we still gardened, went fishing, cleaned the home, worked, washed the cars, made preserves and jams, pickles, played with our kids, went to church, enrolled kids in various activities and participated in them as well and a lot more because life is full of great things to do outside a game. Is my experience a problem to you?
You appear to be easily offended on behalf of others. Are you a bigot who believes others are incapable of taking care of themselves? You must be their savoir? Who is it with the God complex here?

In a sense yes. I still play and it is my opinion it the best MMORPG of those I have played over the years. Asheron's Call came close and WoW was fun at first, when there was difference between the classes. In this, balance is impossible as each will have strengths against some and weaknesses against others. The whiners came in droves because they couldn't press a button and beat everyone else at will. Equality of outcome is impossible. Equality of opportunity is.
Mostly the game allows me to spend time with old friends. We play Warcraft II and Starcraft at times as well.
