I don't read WoW Insider Guides to hear about how the author hates some achievement. This is a *guide*, not a column or editorial. I think talking about how much she hates the achievement is whining in this context. Her comments about the community's view of the achievement were fine, but how else would you describe her first sentence of "I've been pretty vocal about my hatred for this achievement"? That's not discussing a flaw in a piece of programming: that's whining. It's her piece, she can say what she wants in it, but if I think something is whining, then I'll say it's whining.And this is semantics, but saying something is whining isn't the same as calling someone a whiner. The latter implies a pattern of behavior and reflects my opinion of the person as a whole; I was referring to one specific instance.
