Awful lot of assumptions you got there, it could be that GMs are particularly busy now due to these game designs or "security decisions" that have been in the game for months, if not years... or it could be that we're 3 months in to a particularly large and brand new WoW expansion.So.... Seriously..?As I recall, they set up a "halp, I've been hacked" function on their website last year (if not before), meaning the number of in-game tickets should actually have declined. They've also been posting a lot of information on the community site about how to spot and avoid these scam emails in the last few months as well.As for the DF, personally I don't think I've ever come across an issue in a DF pug that forced me to go to a GM, just because 5 random strangers are put together for a 45 minute dungeon doesn't mean they all have to be asshole and ninja-looters who can't solve a problem. If DF issues we were so frequent that they were really that large a hog on GMs, Blizz probably would have addressed it, I dunno, sometime in last year and a half the system has been in place.As for your last two points, I guess I would just say you seem to be playing a different WoW than I am. I feel like the number of idiots and jerks hasn't changed much in the 4 years I've been playing, and perhaps I'm the only one, but when I run into an asshole I don't run screaming to a GM because the guy was a jerk. I use the GM function to report idiot names like "smokinganja" (that did, in fact, exist before Wrath) and when a quest bugs out on me, not because Lolgelos need rolled on a mail helm that had int on it.The article is sort of misleading, the OP asked if filing false complaints was against the rules as he didn't see anything in the ToS about it. It only took about 90 seconds for 10 people to chime in and say "duh". IMO, a blue post wasn't necessary, and really was neither was the article, but no need to be a jerk about it.
