The people who play Horde tend to be more, as said above, "TOUGH RAWR" Have you ever socialized with Horde players? They take their characters more seriously, invest themselves in the combat PvP mindset. Put 20 Horde players in a bar with 20 Alliance and the Horde will be chanting "For the Horde!" and beating their chests, waving beer in the air and grunting a lot. The Alliance players will be discussing rotations, raid strategies and loot drops. (yes, for the record, I speak from experience)"...and I wonder how much of that be traced to the relentless ganking and camping campaigns three years ago." I think you have answered your own question. A slight original imbalance becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Mob mentality coupled with the anonymity of a MMO brings out the worst in some, then word of mouth spreads the news. If you didn't like the atmosphere, you left. If you were thinking about a realm transfer and read the forums, you went somewhere else.

My experience is not the exact opposite, but yours seems to be a bit more extreme than reality. However, your example is comparing two different things - Horde PvP vs. Alliance PvE. I know Horde players that would be perfectly at home discussing raid strategy, rotations, etc., and Alliance players that just want to stroke their e-peen.
