No my comment here is that it is a tiny tiny tiny percentage of people who see that content compared to the rest of wow. I have only recently started raiding and the content is amazing. But the whole thing smacks of frustration in that the content is insanely hard and only a few will see it. Minus the obvious youtubes and walk-throughs.Blizz has an odd balancing act of keep content hard for hardcores and yet somehow let non-hardcores see new content too. It is a weird place to be in. I can tell you that I quit WOW before when I hit 85 and could not figure out a good way to continue really. The content before 80 to 85 is insanely easy and the content at 85 is completely jilted the other way. It is still doable and that is the point but there is not much between and the average or casual player gets left behind...The original comment from the article seemed so out of touch with the average player of WOW who cannot and probably will not ever see that content. So the number is way low as far as I am concerned.

You and I will see Rag the way I saw Arthas. I saw Arthas at lvl85 with 220K of health and way better gear than the people who actually downed him at level. And that's on normal mode! I'm OK with that, though I'm not OK with the entitled attitude of the majority of the raiders who think that this is and should be ALL the game is about. Someone in this thread commented that they have cut back to raiding two nights a week, three hours a night. I will probably play WoW 8-10 hours this week, but the biggest single chunk will be an hour in which I will hope to squeak in a heroic 5-man. (Easy to do if you don't get any idiots in LFG, but ...).

You seem to be confusing content and difficulty.The dungeons and the bosses (content) are available in two difficulty setting (three when LFR is implemented).A tiny amount defeated the last boss of the hardest difficulty... there is nothing wrong with that.A much larger amount defeated that same last boss and saw the same content on normal difficulty.
