First, let me say how much I appreciate your respectful tone, CSB. I always try to take criticism seriously, but sometimes it's hard to see a constructive comment when it's wrapped in profanity, and demands for my termination from the WI team.First, I should point out that leveling guides are something the site needs. We have a big flashy button on the front page that links to WoW Insider's leveling guides, and the Warlock guide currently stops at level 70. I figured it was about time to change that. This article isn't for people who check the front page of WI every day, it's for people who need a leveling guide.Second, my post about Naxx was before Ulduar came out, just to clear that up.Third, I've learned to recognize that anything I write here needs to be based on my personal experience backed up by research. No matter what I do there will be people who say I didn't gather enough of either one before I posted, but that doesn't mean I can just look up Ulduar bosses and take a guess at what Warlocks would be good at. I'm working on getting that experience, but these things take time, and I don't have an infinite amount of time. I do want to provide you guys with the depth that you've been asking for, and I do frequently look to Allison and Christian and the other class columnists as role models. I freely admit that most of them are better than me--but most of them have also been doing this for quite a bit longer than I have. Blood Pact could be better, and I'm trying to make it better, but that's not going to happen overnight.Your idea of interviewing people is actually an *extremely* good one I think, and I think I'll try to do that within the next few weeks. Ever since I was offered this job I worried about PVP content, and I had pretty much accepted that I wasn't going to be able to provide any. But finding a really great PVP 'lock and interviewing them is an astoundingly good idea.Again, thanks for your criticisms. They've been quite valuable to me.Oh, and Jpheenix: I read every single comment posted to every article I write. Heck, just last week or so somebody posted a new comment to the very first article I wrote here at WI. Just because the change requested by a handful of readers isn't implemented the very next week doesn't mean that I haven't read, considered, and analyzed every criticism. I do take what you guys say seriously.Though if you've decided to stop reading, then I am sorry I wasn't able to provide the kind of content you wanted. Maybe I can do better in the future.
