I don't see how this was a success at allRon Paul supporters complain he gets no coverage in the mainstream media (conspiracy! conspiracy!) so they hold a rally in a video game that's not mainstream and therefore doesn't get mainstream coverage. They claim success by pissing off a large portion of the Whisperwind community. Most suffered from chat and trade channels bogged down with ron paul drivel, lag and other stability issues. And of course, the return of the queues. Most of us (myself included) couldn't log in at all. A successful political rally shouldn't interfere with people who aren't interested. Forcing people that don't support you into dealing with you is not how you win elections - no matter how in your face and real you think you're being. I am disturbed that Blizzard has done nothing about this intentional act of disruption on their servers. Whether it was their goal or not, the ron paul supporters actively prevented others from enjoying the game and disrupted other's play times. People who joined the warrior and priest riots were suspended for 24 or more hours. People involved in the ron paul march shouldn't be treated any differently
