They're not hiding behind "WoW Insider Staff." Read:http://www.techcrunch.com/2008/07/24/aol-makes-big-budget-cuts-across-blogs/"I don’t know what’s going on with Engadget and co., or the lifestyle blogs, but the gaming bloggers were told yesterday to STOP ALL POSTING. Now, after the network bosses went into the fray, our two biggest sites are cleared, but the rest of the sites are working on a 5 posts/day deal, so long as those aren’t written by international bloggers, but only US writers. Anything above and beyond that is unpaid and will be written under a staff account. Nearly everyone has agreed to post for free, including columnists, in the hopes that we will all still have jobs come August 1, when they’re telling us we’ll be back — just on a smaller budget."

Bad troll is Bad. They credit MMO-Champion as the source. News is shared all the time. Ever heard of the AP? A majority of the news from your local newspaper comes from the AP. If there were no news sharing, your local paper would be over half empty.

Perhaps they should just make troll posts on MMO Champion and direct people to WI to debate them. Where's all the ground-breaking original content on your blog, vlad? http://vladsucks.wordpress.com/You seem to understand the point of a blog -- as a way of aggregating info from multiple sources and providing commentary/discussion -- but only when it suits you. You deride WI for "riding the coattails" of MMO-C, but you do the exact same thing on your blog. Are you just pissed that no one is paying you to troll more established blogs?
