Conversations with strangers

I got a new phone last month.  Ever since then, I've been swarmed with texts and calls from people looking for an "Emily".  At first I was polite, and told them this was no longer her number.  A month and a half later, I'm screwing with them because they just won't stop.  Here's a transcript of the latest: Texter:  Hey Em?? Me:  She's getting dressed.  What's up? T:  Who is this? Me:  The guy who just took her to "pound town".  If you know what I mean. ;) T:  I'm Young... So no...

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love World of Warcraft.  From the lore to the incredibly immersive world, Blizzard has crafted what I consider a perfect fantasy world.  What absolutely kills it for me each time I come back is the community.  Granted, I play on one of the oldest servers in the game, but WoW has a reputation for making Xbox Live look like and example of tolerance. What draws me back is the chance to play with old friends again, new classes, and a totally revised world.  I really want to create a Worgen and unleash the fury as a warrior. What gives me pause, is the community.  I hate them with a passion.  Stories like this  are what keep me at bay.  It's a community full of elitists unwilling to help.  Thankfully, I have a group of friends to play with, but do I really want to get b
