What, no mention of the drama that spawned from the removal of drama from Guildwatch?

Well considering the locked comments and deleted others, it's no wonder they didn't mention it.

If you disagree with our decisions, fine. No problem. We'll allow your dissent on our site.But if the dissent gets into threats and cursing at writers, then it has no place here.Comments crossing the line will be removed. Repeat offenders will be banned. Discussion of moderation will be removed as well. Moderation is not a topic we're willing to discuss with the internets at large.Regards,Adam HoliskyEditorWoW.com

Their ability to casually dismiss overwhelming feedback AND totally ignore the busiest post of the week in a story all about the comments of the week is truly remarkable.This [1. Local] post is effectively inside a reality distortion field that ensures the one thing that should be in here isn't. It'd be farcical if it wasn't so sad.

On the WoW forums a 20 page thread about how terrible a change is, while very visible, is not an overwhelming majority of WoW players.On WoW.com 200 comments about how terrible a change is, while very visible, is not an overwhelming majority.A very very small percent of a percent of total readership participates in the comments. We have much more advanced ways of tracking likes and dislikes. And while we do listen to well thought out and constructive feedback, internet asshatism goes in one ear and out the other.Also, Tridus, there is no need to comment multiple times with the same points you're trying to make. Move on.

To further their sunny positive new outlook, they cordially invite all the Horde on one server to come camp pre-mades and gank the Alliance. Sounds reasonable.

Heh, no surprise there, as this article too was written by Poisso. Why'd she talk about things that are obviously uncomfortable for her?Lame and childish? Yes. Surprising? Not at all.

I doubt comparing wow.com to the wow forums has any merit. It's not like the changes you make isn't going nerf my druid into oblivion. When blizzard makes a nerf, if I decide to leave the game and play another mmo, I'll have to start from square one and relearn a whole new game. I rather stay and get over it, than do that. However, WoW.com doesn't have that luxury, it's just another wow blog on the Internet. I could go any where else to get the same stories and content you guys provide. I can go somewhere else without any trouble. The reason I'm still here is because I'm a creature of habit.I'm annoyed to watch you guys trying to fix what isn't broken. It's like watching some guy mess with his car's engine when it was just fine, and his tinkering isn't making it any faster or more fuel efficient. Right now I'm like the guy's wife and I want to sake him mercilessly and yell at him to stop. The drama was one of the things most of us enjoyed, and I'm sad to see it get eighty-sixed by what I feel is questionable logic. It's only one of the FEW things you guys had that others didn't. Yeah, there is wowdrama.com but that blog hasn't been updated in months.

Like it or not, that was one of the most discussed topics this week. Not including it in a post about the most discussed topics this week just shows how uncomfortable (some of? all of?) the wow.com staff are with feedback that's not praising. It makes you guys look really unprofessional. Oh, and not long ago, this same writer practically called her readers stupid for not agreeing with her advice on one of her columns. So yeah...

[Local] is about funny and insightful posts by people here. Not much that was a response to that article was funny or insightful.

Adam, if you will pardon my sarcasm, what is your much more advanced system of tracking likes and dislikes? Highlighted or shaded posts? Because if that's it, comments about removing drama were highlighted, where comments "liking" the new format where shaded.
