World of Warcraft players are not 'Crack Heads' sign now

We the undersigned absolutely and categorically find the comments made by the Swedish Youth Care Foundation abhorrently offensive and do not except the negative statements made by the media with respect to comments calling players of all ages of the game World of Warcraft 'worse than crack heads'. This is defamation and unnecessary.

We petition the news media and the Swedish Youth Care Foundation to apologise for their arrogant misuse of words in offending 11.5 million people worldwide (a figure that is more than the population of Sweden).

Although we acknowledge the health problems that can be caused by misuse of computer games we detest the way in which this subject has been approached. If the Swedish Youth Care Foundation had any shred of common sense they would understand that this issue needs to be positively addressed and players need to be educated not branded worse than drug users.
