So I am not the only one to be embarrassed by the constant and overt re-iteration of their... friendship.But more importantly, ‘the Horde is evil’? Never, man, never. Would you care to call Go'el evil? Or the Bloodhoofs, senior (and late) and junior? Or my personal favourite, Varok Saurfang? If so, your understanding of ‘evil’ is incompatible with mine.

While Thrall is not evil, he is an incredibly poor judge of character, and will often unquestioningly trust very untrustworthy people.See Grom Hellscream, Garrosh Hellscream, Gallywix, Sylvanas, and a large number of player characters (and before you all jump down my throat, I'm referring to both Horde and Alliance player characters).

I have no intention of jumping down your throat :)And I concede to your point that Thrall's judgement is often poor. Man, Gallywix — I have still not got over it; how could he trust that worm? But it doesn't make him evil, nor the Horde. The statement that the Horde is evil is as meaningless as statements like ’the Alliance is evil’ or ‘Americans are evil’.Yes, Sylvanas is clearly evil. Well, I find Garrosh a bit more complex, but let us call him evil, I have no problem with that. But the bulk of the Horde is not; nor was it a motif Blizzard intended for them (I dare not say ‘has been’ as recent changes, like the forcing of Garrosh and his warmongering lackeys, sadly point in another direction).

Indeed; a better assessment is that the Horde is chaotic while the Alliance is lawful. Although... the Forsaken might just be true blue evil.Thank you, Dungeons & Dragons for the alignment system.
