I took a year off when I was 25 and played WoW PvE hardcore for a year.
Conservatism - Alliance, human female mage – PvE, Server: Silvermoon
Conservative - Horde, tauren female resto druid – PvP, Server: Silvermoon
I raided hardcore and was a guild leader in a couple of hardcore guilds: Virtue, then Unit, Nordrassil – Rank 1 Alliance PvE. We transferred the guild to Silvermoon. I grew tired of running the guild and sorting recruitment issues so I joined Nevermore, another hardcore guild on Silvermoon (Rank 3). Silvermoon is the most progressed Alliance server in the world out of more than 300 servers (10 million + players worldwide) so the competition is extremely hard. This means we were one of the most progressed guilds in the world at one time. I can honestly say running a hardcore WoW guild is equally challenging to running your own business with 7 employees or more. It requires an extreme amount of work in order to be successful and get server first kills. It was a good experience and something I wanted to do at least a limited amount of time during a period of my life.
Notice that both of his characters were female.

The vast majority of Anders Behring Breivik’s manifesto is composed not of his own writings, but a selection of his essays written by others, mostly anti-Islamic bloggers. He reads Jihad Watch, Little Green Footballs, and Gates of Vienna. And his favorite is the European white nationalist blogger Fjordman. No, they are not the same person. (To the credit of white nationalist Europeans, they are not anti-Jewish like white nationalists in the United States. MSM journalists, unfortunately, don't understand the difference between white nationalists and neo nazis.)
This guy has done a great deal of harm to the movement that he supports. Now people will say that right-wing types are a bigger terrorist threat than Islamic jihadists. And people will say that right-wing blogs are fanning the flames of “hate” and they will be blamed for this incident. Maybe governments will use this incident as an excuse to suppress the free speech of blogs they disagree with.
