This needs to be made clear. Mods are cheats plain and simple. You use a mod, you're both cheating and claiming that you don't have the skill to play your class. I just have no respect for a person who being unable to compete on an equal footing resorts to cheats. It's such bad character.

How is a mod a cheat? All a mod does is takes information from what Blizzard is broadcasting, and showing that information in a different format. a) Grid is just a different look of the normal raid frames. Omen, Blizzard is giving that information directly to the game system. b) Omen is just gathering that information and presenting it in a bar frame in relationship to what everyone else is. c) Scorchio/Power Auras, just looks for what buff/debuffs that the user wants to watch.d) Decursive - Looks for certain debuffs on other raid members and tells you to right/left click to decurse/polymorph [this maybe close to cheating but I don't think it quites]i could go on. But seriously, if Blizzard allows for mods (with restictions since it IS their property) why would they consider it cheating? Like I said, Blizzard sends out the information that mods gathers. Then they change how that information is presented in a different manner. Shoot Blizzard has integrated quite a few mod ideas into the core game. If it wasn't for Omen, Blizzard wouldn't have implemented a built-in threat monitor. It is also because of that threat monitor that Omen is able to get the most accurate information instead of the estimated threat that was used pre-wrath. During the PTR, Blizzard was in the process of integrating their own version of QuestHelper until they dropped the idea a few weeks ago (probably from technical reasons)

See cheating involves playing against the rules. The rules are that you can use mods. By your logic anyone who has a faster computer or a better internet connection than you is also "cheating" because it isn't a level playing field. Or any competition runner that doesn't use running shoes and training regimes from the 1800's is "cheating". Sometimes the onus is on the weaker side to rise to the level of the pack, not for the pack to lower itself.In EvE:Online you are not allowed to use mods and they are against the rules so using them is cheating.

Hi, I'm that shaman who's healing you on your KT 25 attempt.You just got your butt chained by Frost Tomb.I have to make a split second decision. Do I pop Riptide on one and Lesser Healing Wave on another with the intent of keeping you two up high enough to survive that AOE frost bolt that's incoming or Chain Heal and hope it catches you all enough to squeeze you out alive while hoping there's no incoming frost bolt?Luckily for you, my addons are set up to display Frost Tombed players in a different color so I can make that split second decision accurately.But, this time, I decided to not know who's Frost Tombed, and you died.Aren't glad I didn't cheat?By the way, my friend just tripled your DPS, but you knew that already didn't you?.... Oh, right, no you didn't.

You do know that Blizzard support add-ons? Your character log on screen will have a option to manage addons by character and the interface menu has an add on tab allowing you to call up their configuration menus.Blizz have even said they design encounters based on the knowledge that the majority of raiders install certain core add ons.

Step away from whatever it is that you're using for inebriation. Maybe ask your mom to change your cereal to something less sugary. Either way, you're a moron.
