.....It's always some person in an internet cafe in either Taiwan or Korea. I can't follow the links right now, but is this a reputable report, or is it just another tall tale feeding off the "person died because of *insert Blizzard game or popular MMO here*" meme?

Wasn't there a South Korean couple about a year ago who spent so much time playing online games that their toddler died from malnutrition?
