I'm actually going to have to agree - this isn't something that I think needs to be hashed out in the "harsh light" of the internet.It's a player's and reader's choice to find and believe sources of information. It's a newsblogger's choice who to spotlight, and where to give what amounts to free advertising. But it sounds like people are feeling betrayed, and are going out of their way to drag Ferarro through the mud in an act of vengeance.Whoever Ferarro is or has been, they've been widely accepted throughout the WoW (Paladin and beyond) community. They, singular or multiple, have built up a reputation of sorts. If it had been easy to tell the personalities apart with ease, then obviously they were failing at what they were trying to accomplish. The fact that they could manage to get away without detection for so long means that the community that supported them (and now seems to be trying to tear them to shreds) was getting what they wanted/needed from their site already, without needing to look for reasons to disagree or attack them. They were able to give the community what it thought it wanted. Enough so to nab a spot in 15 Minutes.Discovering that they may not quite be who everyone thought they were *does* deserve to cause a huge loss of trust on other people. But this feels kind of silly. People seem more up in arms about an online game advice and mechanics source than they get over politicians breaking their own laws.
