I cannot believe that you guys are criticizing Blizzard for wanting to protect their asset and their product. What if you were working on a school/work project and your teacher/boss gave you a grade before it was finished?I use this analogy because each of you that criticize blizzard will be the main ones, QQ'ing on the forums that the "ALPHA" changes are unfair. Shut up....grow up, respect the process. However, in relation to where responsibility lie in a site displaying alpha content. Even if you did not sign an NDA, I think there is an ethical responsibility of the blog/hosting site (that endorses the game) to not post information that:1. Could be inaccurate or misleading (the information is speculation) I doubt that the individual who leaked it, would confirm their submission.2. Could cause Blizzard to create policies or practices that reduce the already controlled flow of information provided to the public. The PTR experience can always be closed completely and patches could be tested by a private third party.I think the game will be a greater experience when the entire concept can be observed. Posting any alpha leaks is risky in my opinion, it seems that what the media prints, makes it fact. I would choose to preserve my journalistic integrity and post facts, not something that could change overnight.I said my peace....
