Ridiculous. Now I have to go back to having it be a pain in the ass to update my numerous addons. Argh.

It isn't hard to keep up with the updates.Both Curse and WoWInterface allow you to mark addons as 'Favorites' and they will email you whenever they are updated.

The Curse email system is terribly buggy (sending you emails days late for addons that are not even on your list) and is not a competent solution at this point. Maybe in the future it will be.

@Ne0nguyYeah, that scales to 60+ addons really well. Especially on patch day.

@ JoshYup, Josh said it. My issue was I was using mods that Curse didnt carry, meaning that before I used WOWMatrix, I was spening an hour or 2 updating mods or looking for the updated mods (meta-hud comes to mind - no one had it, and its the mod that made me try WOWMatrix). There is also the issue that before Curse started paying more attention, I used to get viruses via thier downloads. Now I'm leery of going back to thier site....

Sometimes you have to end a regime you disagree with, even if you don't have the capacity to put up a stable infrastructure to replace the one you over threw. Whether the users are better off with no functional updater than with one you deem evil, doesn't even enter into the consideration...:D

@KakistocracyWtf are you talking about evil regimes? You know this website is called WoW Insider right? You know that we are all talking about an addon updater right? I'm all for debating politics, but keep that on a political website, or even a political blog.

Phantom1219, I'm all for debating what is within the scope of a blog, but let's keep that to metablogs.
