Nice to see WoW (or any MMO) being attributed with saving a person for once as opposed to being 'responsible' for their death/them killing someone else etc!

Well, in the end, who cares how someone learns these things, as long as they learn them?
There is big talk over here about using multi media as a learning tool in schools, some schools are actually using youtube and challenging pupils to do better than the teachers.

Beasty also used to play web based platform games with educational messages. One in particular, you couldn't start a new level until you answered questions on net safety...

Amazing! I agree with TonyWoods - it's good to see something positive for once.

Though... and enraged moose? What the? I couldn't help but laugh at the picture that formed in my head.

Personally I say just throw 'em in the woods and let them see if they are smart enough to figure it out for themselves...

Then again, I'm not really a child friendly person.

Err, not in the Gary Glitter way, mind...

I know, it just irks me that someone would be so amazingly ignorant and myopic to have to learn something like that from WoW.

 Why? Not everyone knows what to do around wild animals anymore. More and more people are urban dwellers, not country/farm folk. Would it have been better if he had learned it from a scout troop(or the nation's equivalent)?
