Reading the listing in the Monster Manual, natural Lycanthropes have control
over the change. Does this mean they can resist the full moon and not
change unless they want to?

Was afraid of that. So they're not really weres as much as shape-shifters
with limited number of shapes (normal, Hybrid, and were...)

There are a lot of examples of werewolves who don't have to shift by
the light of the full moon.

Yes, but if they have full control of the change and there is no stimulus to
the change other than their own will, are they really "weres" and is the
Lycanthropy really a "curse" anymore?

Yes.

and is the

No. And of course it doesn't have to be a curse. Lycanthropy didn't
begin with that movie.

"Were" meaning "man", after all.

Exactly. A werewolf is a "man-wolf" and that can mean . . . whatever. In D&D
it's got two uses.
