Also, from the "WTB Edit button" department:It would be illegal for Blizzard to use any story suggestions from their fans. This is why professional authors are legally bound *not* to read fanfic of their work - someone who wrote a story that the author read could sue if any of the author's later work could be proven in court as similar enough to the fanfic to be considered plagiarism. This has happened to at least one author - Mercedes Lackey, I believe, but don't quote me on that.So Blizzard's not going to be looking for new story ideas from a forum, because if they used something someone wrote, they would have to purchase the story from them or something similar, and that would involve all kinds of legal issues that I'm sure they'd rather not deal with.I don't know if your post was serious or intended as a troll, but either way you're wrong. Twice.
