As a "non-hardcore" raider I really like this idea. I can see all the hard work blizzard has placed into creating their raids, without having to dedicate every waking hour to gearing, studying strats and dealing with the snobbier "elite" guilds on my server. This is good news. The "hardcore" raiders still get a challenge and I get to see end game content. Win/Win

You're not seeing all the content if you're not doing the "hard modes" so don't even think that. You also wouldn't have to spend "every waking hour" to do it, some guilds managed to clear Sunwell pre-Wrath with some pretty lax raiding schedules. The way Blizzard is doing it alienates skilled players, which is fine because the few "skilled players" don't make dent in the population base.

I think our ideas of content is a little different. True, I haven't seen the bosses on hard mode which I'm sure do offer a different feel/challenge. Now at least I can see the work that Blizzard put into the dungeon art. Of course "every waking hour" was an obvious exxageration, however for those of us who don't log on for hours every night or even at all on some days can at least step into a raid take a look around enjoy the effort that Blizzard put into their creations. I am a huge supporter of "E-Z" and "Hard" modes if it means that casual players like myself get to see the inside of all the raids and get some "purple pixels" while doing so.
