If you bothered to read the WoW forums, you'd see tons of threads with tons of replies to buff this or change that. Most such threads have no apparent impact.You're just looking at what they did change, notice players thought it should change, then conclude the Devs will do anything the players want. What you need to do is look at the changes players propose, the support of other players for those changes, and then see how many such proposals actually happen.Bad logic is bad.

That's pretty well stated there. Also, they sure can't win, can they? If they don't do something that's requested, they just obviously fail to see what players actually want out of the game. If they make changes that were requested, they're just caving in and are letting players rule how the game is designed.

At the same time, to say that nothing said on the forums has any impact on the changes they make is just silly.

That's true, klink-o, but I don't think anybody was saying Blizz should either cave on everything or ignore everything. It depends, among other things, on the implications for the rest of the game, as well as how well the players present their case.As stated in the article, certain players made a well-developed case for allowing dual specs at a lower level, but at a level high enough to be out of the range of most twinks and alts. That sort of feedback is far more likely to sway the designers than "DURIDS IZ 4 FAIL!"
