This whole announcement is shady in my eyes. For one, it's posted at 3am. Second, it's posted in the Beta forums that only Beta players can access and comment on. Third, it's a late in the game announcement. This strikes me as a change that isn't going to stay long.

Legitimate points? Check.Some people don't want those points to be considered? Check.Downrank the post until it's unreadable? Check.Go to the first page of WoW's General Discussion Forum. See all those stickies about Cataclysm subjects? Yeah, it kinda does look like Blizz avoided putting this announcement where the majority of people would see it.While I don't agree with Verethrine's conclusion, I don't see why this post deserves to be downranked.

Where are these legitimate points?That it was posted at 3am? Well, it says 3:00 am on WoW Insider because they use EST, but does that mean that the Blue poster posted it at 3:00 am? Not at all. It was posted at 11:04:28 PM PDT. Is it possible that the blue poster lives in, say, California? If Fox put his article into Queue immediately after the announcement was posted, it would be held until the top of the hour, hence a 3:00 am timestamp here on WoW Insider. What's even remotely "shady" about that? Hell...even if Mumper does live in New York...one person's sleeping schedule conflicting with another's isn't "shady."Or how about, "Second, it's posted in the Beta forums that only Beta players can access"That's funny...I'm not a beta player and clicking the Source link above gave me zero problems accessing the beta forums.Can we stop acting like every single blackened post is really just some terrible conspiracy to quell independent thought?

When I said "access" I meant just post in. I was tired. I had no problem accessing it to read it.And the point with it being posted at 3: It was announced late in the day when most normal people are sleeping. whether it was 11pm Pacific or 3am Eastern, it's late at night.And, my conclusion it won't last long isn't based on facts, just the feeling I get when I read about it.Justification. Whether it's wanted/needed or not.
