Backsliders in the church of Warcraft are being coaxed back to the flock with an offer of seven free days of gameplay, to whet their appetite for the Cataclysm expansion due in December.

Notices are going out to lapsed subscribers now; they promise a week of game time, but the offer expires Dec. 1. World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, the MMO's third expansion, releases Dec. 7.

If you've let your account go on hiatus, check your inbox, trash folder or spam filter. It's a free seven days of MMO time. Provided you can say no thanks after it's all over.

This makes me imagine that if I were to quit smoking, Phillip-Morris might send me a free carton of Reds with a lovingly crafted note saying, "we've got a new flavor coming out this winter, and we would love it if you would just take our free gift and just make sure whether you want to leave us or not."
