So someone who plays a rogue is going to be the new Holy Paladin columnist? Well i play a Holy Paladin, so I guess next time they are hiring a rogue columnist, i should apply for that instead of that class I actually play.I used to be a daily reader of WoW.com. Dangling a position in front of the public, having God knows how many people put their hearts into their application, only to hire internally to someone who plays a completely different class, is just plain insulting to everyone who applied, as well as loyal Holy Paladins everywhere. I guess WoW.com was not looking for someone with an in depth knowledge of the class, entertaining articles that aren't solely about buffs/nerfs/gear/news, or columns that deviated from the typical "this is what gear is good for you" columns that anyone who as played this game for more than six months could write.I can only speak from myself, but I will no longer be reading WoW.com. Choosing to hire internally is one thing. Teasing the public for whatever reason is entirely different.

I agree completely, because I know firsthand the amount of effort some people put into their applications. My fiancee loves WoW and got me more into it than I ever imagined. He's an incredibly talented holy paladin and more times than not wipes the floor with other healers with insane healing AND he leads the raid runs smoothly and fairly. He's a skilled writer too, and he spent an entire day making sure he filled out the application to the best of his abilities, literally pouring his heart and soul into it. Despite not being a fan personally of him putting so much time into it, I know he is very knowledgeable in the Holy Paladin area and he had high hopes for being able to write the Healadin articles. I don't know about the other people who applied, but I am quite sure he would do better than any rogue main.Somehow, even I am personally offended by this and think it's wrong.
