Apparently employers are being instructed to avoid WoW players:

...employers specifically instruct him not to send them World of Warcraft players. He said there is a belief that WoW players cannot give 100% because their focus is elsewhere, their sleeping patterns are often not great, etc.

Yeah as opposed to say 20 and 30-somethings whose drinking and bar-hopping make for great sleeping patterns and stellar focus. Or Jennifer Aniston fans who wile away the scrolling through various sites to see what her latest comment on Bradgelina. Or TNC readers who...Oh, wait. No, you guys are great. Your doing a civic duty. I'm sure your employers understand.
