Interesting article Matt! I mash buttons on all my characters which are mainly DPSers (main is a hunter). Using Healbot Addon on my holy paladin made me control a bit the "angry german kid" syndrome but i still tend to spam Judgment key 2 seconds before its ready.Nowadays I'm trying to level a rogue which became a great way for myself to learn some self-control since that limited energy makes u choose more carefully what to use it for.To help queueing/cancelling spells it might be a good idea to use the Addon Quartz - it has a "latency bar" which helps u react according to your lag (which is around 150-200ms where I live at).

Also I don't think you need to go that far to find reasons we button mash - Most of us have DPSers alts/mains in which a second not using skills is a lot of DPS lost... Resulting in a lot of keyboard facerolling except when soloing.

The problem with that is a lot of classes have very specific rotations or priority systems to maximise DPS. I used to play with a guy who mained an ele shaman, and ele shaman had a fairly easy rotation. He also decided to level a kitty alt, and kitties have a strict priority. His kitty DPS was always poor and we couldn't figure out why (my main at the time was a cat/bear druid). He knew what to do and he seemed to be hitting the right buttons from his recount. I remember visiting him (unrelatedly) and watching him play his cat, once, and the problem was immdately apparent. He had his fingers on his number keys and was drumming them, one after another, rapidly in sequence. I cringed and never brought up his DPS again.
