Catassing is defined as this by the Wikipedia entry:

 ”Catassing (also referred to as “poopsocking”) is the process of sequestering oneself at a computer and avoiding other day-to-day activity in favor of ‘levelling up’ in a massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) whose game design makes heavy use of level treadmills or their functional equivalents.”

    Sick and wrong…but funny because I can kinda relate. Not really when I’ve played MMO’s, but i think I had an minor episode of “catassing” when I was playing Ultima IV back in the day.

    Great stuff. Thanks to Gooney for bringing this up and Mark for finding the reference.
