Okay.. ya'll are being a bit frightening. The rabid "BUT TIM IS AMAHZING AND WUNDERFUL AND CURES THE BLIND BY HIS MULTIBOXING HANDS" fans are scary. The rabbit D-B defenders are a bit scary. The rabid OMG HATE MIKE people who seem like a cult going after a protester are probably the scariest.1) Multi-boxing: Considering I've raided with... three different people, maybe more who have multiboxed... and my raid is actual led by One woman playing four shamans, and we're working on Mimiron as the last Watcher in Ulduar 25, which may not be general or Yogg but it isn't shabby either.. quite clearly, I do not dislike multi-boxers. Ironically, before I got to see how much work it really does take to multi-box WELL, I admittedly did not think highly of them. Now I'm impressed by multi-boxers who can hold their own in a raid, even if holding their own means they totally out-DPS me on each Shaman *mutters* 2) "Life is pain, Highness, anyone who tells you differently is selling something." Everyone who has a product or endorses a product quite clearly, has a motive to entice you to listen to them. Their motive is to make money. They are not being generous, amazing people to the game community. If they were, this product would be given for free. Am I saying it is bad to sell it? No! It is not even bad to advertise it. Capitalism is OKAY. But there apparently has been a past that many of those who comment, INCLUDING ME, are not aware of. You can see glimpses of it in the vicious attacks from each sides just in these comments. Which leads me to the final point...3) Mike was right to edit his article to MENTION that there could be something shady going on. He even, in fact, tells people to read the comments. People can research it and do what they like. He said 'apparently' in regards to selling software and shady moves. He did not say that this Multi-boxer was trying to take over your computer with evil software and intends to steal money from you. He just gave warning that everything might not be as clear as it seems. Those who are concerned can investigate. Failure to GIVE warning if there is a possibility this is the case would make me far more concerned than actually bothering to edit a written article. Do I agree with the things Mike apparently twittered over? Nope. But I don't follow twitter at all. I do read Wow Insider. So seriously, everyone step back, cool your heads, and realize that Tim can go on making videos and selling his software. D-B can continue taking whatever stance they want on the issue. And Mike just wrote an article and edited it to warn of information he did not know about that some people may wish to know. There is no reason to remove the edit, and people can believe whatever side they wish. I always prefer to know from the start if something has a potential controversy surrounding it. If, after investigating, I think the controversy is silly, then I just ignore it and enjoy what I enjoy. But being warned that you might want to investigate something isn't actually something that should have to be said as people should always do it, but since they don't, now you know. Make your own decisions.
