An NPC named Robin has been found. WoWhead, asite that scours the game code for new additions, picked up three instances of the tribute in a recent update for the Warlords of Draenor beta build - a male human, a female human, and a blue genie.

This model has been used before as a boss in a dungeon, but the idea is that this version of the model will most likely transform into other Robin Williams' characters.

So this is the age we live in -- Maine state Senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz is an avid World of Warcraft player, and she's catching all kinds of hell for it from her Republican opponents.

Lachowicz is being called out for her "time-consuming double life," and her opposition has even gone so far as to dig up forum posts that are proof of her "crude, vicious, and violent" behavior.

Putting aside Lachowicz' actual legitimacy as a candidate for a minute, what's notable is the way political vetting has extended to the virtual world -- should politicians be forced to maintain constant professionalism online, or should the public forgive this sort of behavior?
