New Game, New Griefers

So, I've moved to WoW. When they say this thing is addictive, they don't lie. It's very easy to get hooked into the "One More Quest" Syndrome, and burn an entire day into nothing. However, with so many people competing for so few resources (in terms of crafting materials, quest targets, etc.) it's apparently quite the hobby to wait until someone is about to get one of these things and then steal it from them before they make it all the way.

I find it both fascinating and frustrating how much this reveals about the essential character of humanity. No matter who you are, or who you pretend to be, at the end of the day, you're just a selfish, petty animal like the rest of us.

I wish I could say I was disappointed, or shocked.
