For you maybe, The person who paid for the sign is out a few hundred bucks because some twit doesn't care about respecting others property.Vandalism is not cool. It hurts people and business and encourages more people to act the same way.

Gah lighten up there scoot-scoot. I think anyone would agree to that.What the vandal COULD have done to achieve the same level of humor is take a picture of the sign, photoshop vandalize it, and then publish it on the interwebz.However, he didn't and wow.com posted it here for its humorous factor. I don't blame them for posting it and I don't think anyone here is thinking "zomg vandlizm iz so kewl, ima go dew it nao."How many times in a given day do we all see something wrong and laugh at it? It's just a currently hot form of humor in our culture, for better or worse.When you watch Family Guy and they make fun of fat people, do you think, "Aw, poor fat people?" No, you laugh.When you watch funny videos of ppl failing at something and hurting themselves, do you go, "Aww, poor guy." No, you laugh.When I see this pic, I laugh.Aw, poor sign-buying person/company/thing. Shame on you vandal!

I understand what you are saying but there is a real difference between what happens in a cartoon and in real life. Even if this is just a photoshop someone might go out and try this because we have a picture depicting someone getting away with it. We could have property damage or that person could end up hurting themselves. At best this is irresponsible, at worst someone will get hurt.

I see a lot of people getting flamed back and forth here guys, and I don't think any of you are wrong. We should all just quit this, mmk?It is wrong. Vandalism is wrong.However, it is also a funny pic.I think both sides would agree to both of those statements and everyone should quit griping about it and enjoy the picture as another one of those things you laugh at and feel bad about.

If they do n get caught or even hurt do we really care? Darwin awards anyone? lol

"I don't think anyone here is thinking "zomg vandlizm iz so kewl""only the WoW Insider writer "this is a pretty cool piece of vandalism."damn Luci, you're stupid

Carebear, it was well established in the rest of this post that everyone believes that is a Futurama reference to Bender's recent vandalism stint.Suck on that.

this is a quote from futurama? "But all things considered, this is a pretty cool piece of vandalism."Orly?

Yarly... in the episode "Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV," (episode 6 of season 4), Bender says the following:"You're watching Futurama: the show that does not advocate the cool crime of robbery"

"I don't think anyone here is thinking "zomg vandlizm iz so kewl, ima go dew it nao."Well actually you are. Giving this picture undue attention (by laughing at it) is giving vandals positive reinforcement. Why do you think people vandalize? They get nothing out of it (materially) and they risk getting punished for it. The reason is people like you laugh at the picture and vandals actually think that what they are doing is "cool"If your mother/sister/daughter got raped and people thought it was "funny" how would that make you feel?

nice try Socialcockroach, but that's not Elizabeth Wachowski said at all. besides it doesn't really matter does it? you're still just fishing for excuses

@SkyYou are comparing rape to minor vandalism...Your argument is as good as the highly conservative douche bags' argument that claim video game violence to be directly connected to high murder rates.It might affect one or two severiously damaged individuals, but the vast majority just get a good, guiltless laugh at it. Loosen up a little

Carebear, perhaps you have some comprehension problems, but the resemblance between "WoW Insider does not condone the cool crime of vandalism" and "the show that does not advocate the cool crime of robbery" is uncanny. As to the rest of it, it is simply an extrapolation on the same joke. But I guess this connection would be lost on a moron.

Luci, something tells me you didn't pay for the sign. Or ever had your property defaced or destroyed.No matter how you spin it, some dickwad defaced someone elses' property. I don't care how cool or clever the image is. All that sign says to me is , "A DICKWAD was here, and unfortunately, they play World of Warcraft".Someone purposely set out to deface what belongs to someone else for the purpose of ...what? I might chuckle if said defacer gets a buttload of fines and community service.
