Firstly, it doesn't "mean nothing to 99% of the players" - raiders represent a much larger percentage than that, and over-nerfing of content to the point where little challenge remains is a concern I would guess applies to most of those. What percentage of players have Ret Pally mains? A small percentage - so should we not be concerned with issues of Ret Pally imbalance, and should Blizzard not care about their concerns? Every player is in some minority demographic, and every player has the right to voice their concerns. The top raiding guild in the world, after clearing all of the expansion content, certainly has the right and the qualifications to make comment.Next, I read 25Nov's comment and didn't read it as "thinly veiled posturing". When I, as a raider, read the news that all endgame raid content had been beaten a) in largely T6 gear, b) with some toons that weren't even lv80, and c) in three days after release, I wondered the same thing - has Wrath been over-nerfed? That is a perfectly reasonable question to ask, and it should be asked.Did 25Nov come out and say "w00t w00t we are awesome and everyone else is a noob, you all suck!!"? No they didn't. They voiced a legitimate concern that represents the concerns of a significant demographic in the WoW playerbase. If you levelled 70-80 in 20 minutes having only done 8 easy quests, would you voice a concern about levelling being nerfed? If you were handed endgame PvP gear from a vendor at level 71 to put all PvPers on an equal footing, would you voice a concern about lack of reward? That is, essentially, what has been handed to endgame raiders in this expansion.I am not saying that you should all jump onto the raiding cause - play the way you want to play. But don't drag down a significant achievement and try to take your blinkers off to see things from raiders' perspectives because this is a significant issue for them. Look up Tall Poppy Syndrome on wikipedia and take a good hard look at yourselves.
