WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ALL OF YOU SUPPORTING THIS?First, Blizzard adds advertisements to the forums because they need to make more money right? 11 million monthly subscriptions have GC driving a pinto to work everyday I'm sure. Though I don't think adds should have advertisements, if you download the add, it's your choice to filter through that garbage. Don't like the advertisement? Don't use the add. It's amazing how cleansing the freedom of choice can be.Second, though I am personally not a user of any add on that requires me to pay for it, this is a country where people get paid for their ingenuity. Blizzard is, essentially, saying that they are the only ones that can make any money on this game.Third, though the policy on addon code is understood, let's not pretend that Blizzard doesn't at least look at the code that someone else wrote, if only to save them time, when it comes to adding game features. I know this argument can be shot down because no one at blizzard apparently even glanced at a mod like Omen when they put in their built in crap of a threat meter, but they could have used it. So Blizzard is now not only saying that you can't charge for the mod, but we have exclusive rights to steal your intellectual property. Again, I know Blizzard has some of the best programmers in the world, but intellectual property that saves them man hours is still intellectual porperty that saves them cash, and it never even belonged to them.LONG LIVE BLIZARD AND IT'S CONTINUING SODOMIZING OF WOW FOR GREATER PROFITS!
