How does the merger with The Huffington Post affect you guys if at all?

There will probably be no impact that can be discerned by the reader.

Arianna Huffington will now have a weekly column where she babbles on about crap without knowing what the hell she's talking about. So, business as usual basically.

I hope that's true, HuffPo has some very draconian posting rules (basically if you say anything they disagree with, you're deleted.)One thing I've always appreciated about WoW Insider/wow.com/The NEW WoW Insider is that they're open to criticism.

HuffPo's moderated, because the content they write about tends to bring out a lot of passions. I have done moderation for political sites, and i'll tell you it can be brutal. Post a story about the stock market going down a few points due to a poor earnings report, and you're deluged with comments about ethnic minorities, welfare collectors, ect. Post a story about the former President and you get the crazies who think he's a lizard person. It just happens. If they didn't moderate, their comments would be useless. I'm sure there's some level of moderation here too - if someone brings a topic out of left field.Still, my biggest hope: An updated comments system!

From now on all healer articles will be canceled, because healers are part of the corporate greed system that keep you getting injured and need healing. Whenever you get injured there is a healer standing right behind you, coincidence? Why aren't they preventing you from getting injured in the first place? They even demand their "fair share" of loot.Buffs also are suspect and evil, because ever notice once you get buffed then go fighting, you immediately get poisoned or diseased? So buffs obviously cause disease.Those will be the main changes.

In order to read an article, total mouse clicks will be reduced to 17, from 132.

"Post a story about the former President and you get the crazies who think he's a lizard person."Yeah, that is crazy. Everyone knows the write-in campaign for lizard people failed to garner enough votes. But it was worth a shot...
