Article in today's Seattle Times
A Camano Island woman who met a 14-year-old boy through an online role-playing game is accused of having a sex with him after traveling cross the country to meet him.
Police said the boy's mother got information from her son's computer and provided it to local officers and the FBI, who arrested the woman, 38, on Monday at a Red Roof Inn in Jackson Township, about 50 miles south of Cleveland.
She is accused of having sex with the boy in October, and police believe she was planning to move to Ohio along with her two children.

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.

"The worst lies are the lies we tell ourselves. We live in denial of what we do, even what we think. We do this because we're afraid. We fear we will not find love, and when we find it we fear we'll lose it. We fear that if we do not have love we will be unhappy."

*For those that have been floating around the mmorpg community for a while, you've probably already seen this pop up on a forum or two...but I figure I'd throw it here for people who haven't seen it.
I'm out of town until the 27'th for the holidays, so have a good Thanksgiving everyone!*

I have been reading through all of your comments and I feel that my husband is definitely addicted. It has been so so difficult. I have only been married for 4 months and yet I never knew that he had this addiction before we were married because he never played computer the entire time we dated. If he had, I probably would not have married him.

As awareness increases, the need for personal secrecy almost proportionately decreases.
We hang onto secrets when we're unsure of ourselves and the role we're asked to play--secrets about our inner thoughts, our dreams and aspirations, our feared inadequacies.

I thought up a plan.
I will be able to do business and banking and even hmm xxxx some music.
My son will be the admin of my comp. I will have him block the Internet after 11 at night. He will surely think of places I would be wise not to surf.
