WoW is becomming a kid's game!

Just a quick word regarding all of this "pandaren are childish" rage. I'm sure a lot of people have at one point read this famous quote from the Bible somewhere:
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
Here's an expansion on that one, by C. S. Lewis:
Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.
TL;DR: You think it's childish? Grow up!

  1. You know what pulled me to this post most? The title. I was going to brush it off as another 'ra, rah complaining post' to add to the list, but then I changed my mind after reading XD

    Although most of the text is sourced outside, I didn't need to read any more with your last words.

    Quite inspirational quotes if I do say so.

    Good post,
