When do you think the line between reality and virtual reality is crossed? When can cyberspace become too real, or too much of a replacement for "real" life? When does the internet become unhealthy or dangerous?

The line between reality and virtual reality is crossed when someone becomes so obsessed with their "second-life" that it becomes more important to them than their real one. They become so immersed in this new world that they try to live out their sexual fantasies via their second-life (as we read in one of the articles). Considering that there might be younger kids playing the game as well, this is when it becomes dangerous. This argument may sound extreme to most people (including myself), but it does seem to happen to alot of people.
