I'm one of many who have tried in vain to get Blizzard's attention, but their policy is to meet our questions with silence, sadly enough. I've seen (and even started one of them, myself) threads reach the 25-page post cap and get auto-locked, over and over again, with no sign of a Blizzard response.It's sad that we're asked to police the realms ourselves, but are not given the tools to do it. The only thing we CAN do is to report the griefers and trolls, but once the GM responds it is too late - and at the most, they hand out those 3 hour suspensions that don't matter at all. I've sadly come to realize that as a minority, our concerns are unimportant to Blizzard - they simply don't see us as any kind of priority, so they don't spend any time on us.Geeky or not, I very much enjoy roleplaying and so do many of my friends. I think it helps keep the game and the gameworld fresh even when the instances and quests grow stale and old. But even so I could not recommend WoW as a platform for anyone to do it on to someone who doesn't already play, because anyone joining and excepting actual support for roleplaying from Blizzard's side will become sorely disappointed. It's very possible it makes perfect business sense, but that doesn't always a make for a great game.
