"Additional Instances Cannot Be Launched" plagued instances runners for 6+ months this year. I realize WoW.com does not want to shed too much bad light on our beloved game - but this should have been mentioned.

To be honest, it wasn't a bug. Despite what people thought, it wasn't a bug. I got so sick and tired of seeing people "reporting" this "bug". It was placed in on purpose to keep the instance servers running slow.I don't think it necessarily qualifies for a list seeing as there were many articles about it, and I doubt one particular one about it stood above any of the ones listed.

Where did I say this was a bug? This problem caused 6 months of Purple Skull of Dreaded Instance Denial facesmashing for hours and hours. If you were to add up all of the time lost it was quite substantial. Yes it was working as designed - and it was poorly designed at that! So we have too many people running instances - lets add - MORE INSTANCES! (Which is exactly what they did) Silence from their support, Blue's ignoring the issue. Sure it was not a bug - but it crippled the game. Imagine not being able to run any instances. What is there left to do? Roll an alt? An alt that would not be able to run instances either! Turn on your TV - Sorry too many people are watching Channel 3 - try again later. This message is working as intended. This should have been mentioned - the game was broken for 1/2 of 2009.

I didn't say you said it was a bug, I was just commenting on how tired I was of seeing people claiming it was a bug. People were posting several posts a day on the Bug Report forum saying it was a bug. And I meant "from slowing down", in my original post.My point was this list was compiled from articles with the most page-views, and I doubt any of the articles on that problem had more than any of the ones listed.
