If Blizzard "intends" you to do certain things, why don't they just draw up a checklist and post it somewhere, and further, just not allow you to enter a raid unless you meet their criteria? I thought WoW was a game, not conform-to-our-intentions exercise.

All games require you to conform to the intentions of their creators. Nintendo intends for you not to die in the lava pits as you're rushing to kill Bowser and save the princess. If you can't meet certain criteria then success isn't for you. Planning a raid requires actual planning, including mana regeneration, buffs, debuffs, heal types, damage types, et al.

I actually agree here - Blizzard clearly doesn't like it when players find some solution to their encounter they didn't intend or don't like. Guilds working on Sunwell (and naxx before that) was full of strange solutions to counter bosses.But then - they never come out and say anything when releasing content. They never give tips, strategies, or hints to a single encounter (except loken) so why do they get mad when players seemingly exploit a boss by using some neglected craft (haste drums come to mind) or ability?After all that - I'd bet they couldn't beat some of their own creations...
