translation of your post
"Hi Im an elitest dork who thinks that everyone HAS to raid/arena in order to get their epics.
Tell me something, are you of the mind that everyone plays WoW to raid? do you somehow pay more money than everyone else therefore giving you the right to judge how their epics should be earned? I think not.
Fact of the matter is chum, is that everyone is different, some like to pvp, some like to raid constantly, how someone gets their epics is up to them.
Your comments were negative and one sided like most people who gained their epics through raiding/arena, you obviously have more time to commit, I would even compare your response to that of someone complaining about the price of a brand new console being dropped from $1000 to $799, then complaining because someone got it cheaper.
Basically what I'm trying to say is, if you wanna pay my subscription to WoW Ill raid/do arena for my gear as you say everyone should, but until then? STFU.
Honor cap is fine as far as I'm concerned and 75k is plenty, the scaling between pvp epics and raid epics is fine:)

Oct 28th 2007 9:50PM Twink vs twink is the way and only way it should be, you put all the time and effort into making one, its only proper that they should face off against each other, its no fun otherwise.
Blizzards matching system needs to be far more defined in regards to how teams are formed right across the board, not just for twink matching.

Oct 26th 2007 1:08AM Not at all a bad feature, pity its just another money making scheme.
But in saying that, it prompts people to choose wisely instead of picking something totally stupid like 'Emocutz' or whatever:P

Information given at the end was taken from www.userscripts.org and not my own.
Oct 25th 2007 2:30AM Good post, anyone with any sense will take it on board as useful to know about.
Blizzards interceptor is a good idea in theory, but in practice it can be damn irritating to others and in no way is it a *solid* form of protection.
Basically what we have here is an alternative to by-pass this, while scripts can be beneficial always be vigilant before installing them, do some reading up on it before you proceed as some can be used to steal your cookies.
Check your scripts, if you see:

You start off by saying your heart goes out to the guy, who when you actually take a closer look, isn't really all that stable - he traveled across the Canadian border for 700 miles
Then you mentioned something about age gaps, thats not even an issue, he could have been, like you said 18 and done the same thing and its still strange.
Did you read the article about it besides this one posted on WoW Insider?, it mentions the gifts being described as 'strange', the fact the guy had large amounts of alcohol points towards possible intentions that I'm sure we can all imagine he had.
This guy was posing as female, and came up with a bullshit story about being sent there to drop off gifts.
I'm not posting this to have a dig at you mate, I'm just posting again because you seem to be torn between multiple scenario's with no clear conclusion.
Oct 24th 2007 10:13PM Sick bastards like the one described in this article make my skin crawl.
Never mind getting all "elitest" on the journalists description of WoW, thats not the point.
The point is that there really are sick, perverted people out there that use and abuse a form of entertainment meant to be fun and social, to carry out questionable acts of harassment/stalking or what ever and in this case preying on a minor.
I see this as a good reminder to be mindful of the dangers that come with online activity, its easy to forget that while you may feel you have the experience to 'spot' this kind of behaviour, there are plenty of others out there that are new to the internet and what it has to offer and are unaware of the dangers, weather it be malicious identity theft or predatory.
I applaude wow insider for posting this article, its about time a dedicated wow website did so as it is connected to warcraft weather we like it or not, what I do suggest for next time though, is that a little more tact is used in the closing comments.
Oct 20th 2007 8:19PM Some will welcome this, some wont.
I welcome it for the sheer fact that grinding rep is a monumental pain in the ass as many people have pointed out already.
Nerfing the rep on the keys isn't going to change a thing, the only thing it will change is the amount of people being keyed for heroics.
There will always be 'noobs' that have things that others believe they shouldnt, but fact of the matter is, is that this game is constantly evolving, things will change and in the end who cares?.
