Excellent article, and very informative. I'd definitely recommend levelling as BM, and keeping a BM spec for soloing, but I still don't think its a viable raid spec, regardless of the arguments. Major drawback you missed? Uncontrollability of pet. Your BM pet is doing a huge portion of you damage, and can't switch targets quickly (or at all sometimes!). Then theres the ninja-pulling of mobs by pets, but thats a whole other topic...

Control-1. That's attack - or if you need to, you can make a macro and keybind it. I respectfully disagree with your comment against BM. Also, simply turning your pet to defensive or passive (depending on the case) stops all ninja-pulling. That is, unless your cat thinks there's something tasty on the keyboard.... -BM during 3.0.8

If you're controlling your pet properly there should be no ninja pulling by your pet that results in anything that you wouldn't be able to loot; even if you have your pet on defensive, it will only attack things you have attacked first (Unless you tell it to attack something before hitting it) or that have attacked you, in which case you really should be getting a hit on them first anyway. If you are worried about this, keep them on passive and micro-manage their attacks. I'm also really confused about what you said about changing targets- pets can change target as fast as you're able to tell them to do it. It's all down to control, and BM pets are just as controllable as any other spec.
