I'm warning all wow.com posters now:In past years, people have made very crass and rude comments based on images of females that this website has posted. Now, I'm all okay with an "I'd hit it!" as a quick joke, but it is really distasteful when people absolutely trash how these ladies look, their costumes, or maybe a half a centimeter of extra girth in the stomach area. If you see yourself thinking these things, or see yourself typing these things, STOP. Just STOP. Don't do it. You make yourself look like an ass. You are most likely being extremely cruel, even if you don't realize it.In other words, lets all be as civil online as we would be in person. If you wouldn't dare say something in person to the subject of your post, don't you dare post that on wow insider. It's not fair to the great people who run this site, it's not fair to the fellow posters, it's absolutely horrible what you are doing to the subjects you are trashing, and you only make yourself look like complete pond scum (apologies to pond scum, as they serve a useful purpose in this world).It would be really nice if Drama Mama's could put up a quick article reflecting on how we can all be decent human beings to each other (in person and on wow insider) for this Blizzcon.

If you remember last year on the Eve of Blizzcon a commenter called lovely Felicia Day a "Butter Face".And yes, Felicia herself commented on that.Sadly the WOW community is just so used to being as negative as possible.

I think Wil Wheaton put's it best, "Don't be a d*ck"

I think this comment is good. But if wow.com puts an actual article up with these guidelines, I think it would just spur people to do it even more.
