Victor Davis Hanson on National Review Online.

Admittedly I am a proponent for chaos. So it's no surprise that I'm entertained by the endless parade of unintended consequences that Sims Online has become. People played The Sims because they could control their world and build up an entertaining fantasy self, much as we geeks have been doing for years. By making it an online world with few controls, they allowed the adolescent in everyone to run wild and unleashed the tyrrany of those with too much time on their hands. Chaos indeed. I'm entertained.
