This is without a doubt the worst post I've ever read on WoW Insider.When I read the title I thought it was going to be an insightful and constructive post about the dangers of assuming that content will fix your problems. In fact, in the last couple lines you said "be proactive about solving your guild's problems now -- before you're left without options. Firelands alone doesn't have the legs to save your raids." If you had expanded this and gone into detail this could have been a great post. Instead you went the route of doomsday crier standing on the street corner yelling "THE END IS NEAR!!!!"In my opinion this post is only slightly better then the nerdragers on the forums claiming SWtOR is going to be the WoW killer, or the guy that says Blizzard is ruining his game by releasing only 7 bosses in the Firelands. If your going to write an advice column it's a good idea to include some actual advice. All you said in this post is "Yes, you have a problem. You should work on it."

@GrayloI fully agree with you Graylo, though, I actually think he talked circles around himself. As I think he mentioned a benefit as a negative. but based his whole column on the negative aspect.Less people having time to raid + Less raid bosses + More side stuff to do = Bliss

I found the column rather cathartic, myself. It sorta validated my own observations and hopefully helped cushion the potential blow for the folks who are hanging onto 4.2 as a cure-all. Maybe there was no "advice", per se, but it is a useful post.

Scott did offer advice: "I highly recommend reading this column from 2009 about surviving the summer months. Everything I say there is still relevant, sound advice. "There's no reason that he should extend the length of today's article to restate what he has said already.
