If I play only 'casual' games, am I still a 'gamer'?

What about if I'm spending say 40+ hours a week on them?
What about if I work to get 3*s in every level?

And another story I just read that makes me very angry. Cross posted to CH, but it may be too inflammatory for them

UK allows Muslim nurses to not wash to protect their “modesty”
http://www.eutimes.net/2010/04/uk-allows-muslim-nurses-to-not-wash-to-protect-their-modesty/

IMHO Anything that compromises hygiene in these days of 'super bugs' is asking for trouble. This isn't being anti Islam or even anti religious... This is just pure common sense and it's being thrown out of the window!
Quote
Muslim female staff will not need to wash their hands before procedures as it compromises their modesty.
Seriously WTF?! I can accept their position on modesty, so allow them to scrub up separately, in private. It's wrong to force anyone into a position they feel uncomfortable, but surely common sense must prevail...

I do not agree with everything in this article, but if this is true, then I am very worried...

Here's is the Daily Telegraph's less sensational version too for presenting a balanced view of sources
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/7528335/Female-Muslim-doctors-allowed-to-wear-disposable-sleeves-for-modesty-official-guidance.html

Here's a topic:

What does it take for a game community of competitive games to reach a higher echelon? For example, LoL, CoD, Starcraft, all have tourneys where top winner gets hundreds of thousands of dollars while the fighting game community, Street Fighter, MvC, etc seems to normally sit around $1000 - $10000(EVO) per tourney. What is the secret? Why are the others so successful and others not?
