    the pre requisites are that you stay online for 2 hours a day.

    now call me crazy, but id have to say that probably half the users of the Hype! are what they consider to be 'addicted' to the internet.

    you god damned junkies!

    It has become a national issue here in recent years, as users started dropping dead from exhaustion after playing online games for days on end. A growing number of students have skipped school to stay online, shockingly self-destructive behavior in this intensely competitive society.


    Wow, I'm not even that bad.

    As a Korean who grew up in these environments this is standard drills in bootcamp for teens, and they have classes in school that do these exact same drills too. I think you guys over dramatize the emotional impact on these kids.

    Not if we're opposed to the strictness of compulsory education in general. And by we I mean me.
