Reminder: Save your mobile authenticator serial number before you upgrade your iPhone {WoW}

Jun 22nd 2010 3:22PM Pretty sure you mean "...lose your data." Unless, of course, you're coming from the "Cry havok and set loose the Data of War!" angle.

Results: How did the voice chat rollout go? {WoW}

Oct 5th 2007 11:05AM We tried it out, but the quality is just not as good as I am used to. We went back to our Vent client after a few minutes.

I do think it's a great thing to have, particularly when PUGging, but I am not going to end up using it very much myself.

Around Azeroth: Are two pairs of wings better than one? {WoW}

Oct 1st 2007 11:53AM "This begs the question -- are two pairs of wings better than one?"

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Begs_the_question:
"'Begging the question' describes a type of logical fallacy, petitio principii, in which the conclusion of an argument is implicitly or explicitly assumed in one of the premises. In other words, the argument fails to prove anything because it takes for granted what it is supposed to prove." A common example is someone attempting to use passages in the Bible to prove the existence of God to a non-believer.

It would be more correct to say, "this prompts the question" or "this raises the question" or "this invites the question." There is no logical fallacy about a Paladin riding a flying hippogryph...though it does have some potential issues with physical laws of gravity that can be explained only by Magic.
