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 internet is a very useful tool. It puts an immense amount of the information at your fingertips. However, it can be very dangerous and unhealthy when people become too depend of it, like most of us are. Also, the internet offers almost absolute freedom of speech, but this instantaneous and uncontrolled transmission of ideas can be use for illegal and offensive things. Moreover, some people get so caught up into video games and social networking website, such as World of War Craft and facebook, respectively that they stop interacting with others and some even confuse reality with virtual reality.
