I'm sorry, but that was the most biased article I have read in quite
a while. He does not evaluate MMO's, he simply stated his opinion on
them. If none of the current MMOs meet his criteria then perhaps he
needs to make his own so he'll be happy.

PvP is not what the MMO community desires. Just like with MUDs, it
is what a section of the community desires. And each MMO decides
early on what section it will cater to. Dark Age caters to PvP,
Horizons doesn't. Personally I see nothing wrong with this concept.
