@Matt, i'm normally a fan of your writing, but I disagree with you on this one.First of all, I think all classes should be able to fill at least two roles. I love tanking. I love my hunter. I wish I could play both at once, but if I want to play a hunter i can only do ranged dps with a pet. But the second point I want to focus on is, why does it matter that the class you like to play can do something else? My guild considers ourselves casual, so maybe this is a hardcore guild issue. My warrior has two prot specs, one for single target and one for AoE. I don't like to play melee DPS, if I'm up close, i want to take the dmg, otherwise I want to be back. So I don't have another warrior dps spec. If on a fight my guild says, "we only need one tank, and I want this other person to tank." Then I whip out my hunter. Since you pretty much have to keep two sets of gear for two different roles, it doesn't make much of a difference if you focus on one spec on two characters, or two specs on one char.In our guild we have a resto druid and a resto shammy who don't dps. We have a ret paladin that doesn't do anything else. I don't understand the logic that if a class can do something, you can't play that class unless you do it.If there is a point i have to agree on, it's that the pure DPS classes don't have much difference between specs. I know there are differences with which spells you focus on and etc, but weapons, stats (for the most part), positioning, they're pretty much the same. I would like to see more variety in their different specs, not less variety in the other classes' specs.

I'd argue you can be a fan of his writing and still disagree with what he says.For example I wouldn't flinch if someone called me a Liberal, not even pejoratively, but I don't agree with everything Michael Moore says. I find him humorous and entertaining, but he's wrong a lot of the time, uses poorly constructed logic, and the same underhanded tactics that his opponents and detractors use.
