MMO-Champion isn't an official fansite, I don't think Blizzard ever contacted us to have content removed from the front page. We mailed them shortly after posting the alpha notes to ask if it was ok, and I eventually took them down because they didn't like the idea but they never mailed me first. :p On the Martin Fury scandal, I don't really like to post that kind of drama because it's not informative. Also, I don't want to turn a small error from a Gamemaster into a huge drama who will eventually get him fired just because it was widely advertised on fansites. I didn't report the german player who got Val'anyr from a GM either. ^^

Well okay, that clears up my Martin Fury questions with you, sorry for the accusatory tone.I'd still like to see you branch into other MMOs. Maybe SW:TOR-Champion? :D

Though to throw in some devil's advocate, maybe if other fansites had covered the Scandal enough, we could've gotten an official statement from Blizzard. Regardless of the morality of what the players did, I hated how Blizzard simply banned and pretended the Scandal never happened. Not even so much as an "Oops, we messed up on the item being given to a player" from Blizz.But yeah, we don't want a GM fire outright, so maybe your call is best for this. Besides, WoWInsider already has like 10 posts on the Scandal. :)
