Personally, I would be happy if the default, "Vanilla" UI weren't so hideously ugly, or if it didn't fill up half of my monitor's viewing area.

Calling it "hideously ugly" is ridiculous. It's perfectly fine for new players and many veterans still prefer it over the various "sleek" (or otherwise) alternatives. Either that was hyperbole, or you are simply impossible to please - either way, that's why the UI is customizable. There's no need to insult the artists at Blizzard that came up with it; its look is perfectly fine and matches the Warcraft theme they've had going for years.

What the hell? I'm not "impossible to please," dude, I just don't like the look of the default UI at all. :PI've customized the crap out of it with everything from Bartender3 to eePanels2, so at least I can say I kinda take your advice.And I certainly did NOT insult the ARTISTS at Blizzard. I dissed one tiny but omnipresent element of a game that is 99% chock full of gorgeous eye candy and improving every day.You and I just disagree in our opinions of the default Interface. No need to be confrontational about it.

In case you're not aware how it works, *artists* design the look of the UI. I'm not being confrontational. I'm simply telling you not to insult them by calling their work "hideously ugly" when it's actually very professional whether you or I prefer some addon's reimplementation better or not.

I'm not retarded. I know that artists designed the UI.Drop the sarcasm, then we'll talk.

Sarcasm? You're the one who said you weren't insulting any artists at Blizzard. I merely pointed out that artists designed the UI. You don't think calling their work "hideously ugly" is insulting? You have every right to have a strong opinion. You have a right to express it. And I have the right to tell you not to be a jerk about it.
