When in the course of human, orcish, tauren, night elf, dranari, blood elf, trollish, gnomish, undead and dwarfish events, it becomes necessary for many peoples to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with game devs, and to assume among the powers of Azeroth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Elune, and The Light, and other varied gods entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of avatarkind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.We hold these truths and opinions to be self-evident, that all avatars are created balanced for PVP, although spells, gear and talent specs will greatly unbalance them later in the game, that they are endowed by their with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness, Gold, Title, Vanity Pets and rare tabards. That to secure these rights, Guilds are instituted among Avatars, deriving their just powers from the consent of the Main Avatars, That whenever any Form of Gguild becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the subscriber to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Guild, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety, Happiness and Progression. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Guilds long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that avatarkind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Guilds, and to provide new Guild Leaders for their future security..... Ummm... this is getting long and I was only really aiming for some sort of punch line about taxation without representation and how I'd be willing to... I don't know... maybe if Blizz hired me so I could represent my server... Hmmm... I just don't know how to word it, and I'm really too lazy to continue and this isn't really funny so I should probably just stop now since this comment is total fail.For those of you who have read all the way to the end, I appologize and am sorry that I can't somehow give you your time back.

@Hugh,I'm pretty sure I stole most of it from Thomas Jefferson. You'll probably have to attribute it to him, with minor edits attributed to the fact that I had the office to myself for two hours this morning and that my boss wasn't here to look over my shoulder.@Hugh and Allison,Thank you both for confirming that even when I put forth little to no effort to deliver a plagiarized, half-assed and unfinished product, I'm still friggin awsome. The ego boosts I get from WOW Insider alone are worth the price of subscription. The only thing that could possibly improve it all is free cookies delivered to my desk daily. Narcissism and Chocolate Chips FTW!!!
