Actually, it dispels 100% of the time since 2.3.

Nov 16th 2007 10:54PM As the tank, I prefer to pull.
Why don't I let the hunter pull? Because, most of the time, I'm PUGging. It's my responsibility to manage the pull no matter who does it, so I'd rather take the responsibility to do it, because it was my fault whether I mess it up or the person I asked to pull messed it up. I'm much happier when I have a hunter I can trust to pull, but I've yet to PUG one.
Why don't I like mage CC pulls? Because mages should be wanding then CCing to get the sheep out of the way of my thunderclap or consecrate or (I guess) swipe or Avenging Shield. If the mage can't figure out how to do this, I'll call for a sheep pull and deal, but it sucks.
Nov 13th 2007 4:46PM Well, let's go into a little more detail.
People only went as far as Mortal Strike in Arms not because the Fury talents were so great that they were must-haves. (Admittedly, they were must-haves, but that's neither here nor there.)
People didn't go past MS into Imp MS and Endless Rage because Imp. MS and Endless Rage aren't very good. Imp. MS's advantages are negligable for what they cost in talent points, and ever since rage normalization got fixed warriors haven't been starved for rage.
On top of this, this build has other problems. Poleaxe Specialization hasn't been good ever since resilience rose to prominence as the PVP stat to have; instead, people chose Sword Specialization for a source of burst damage that isn't mitigated by resilience or Mace Specialization for the stun proc. Since Mace Spec's procrate was nerfed in 2.3, the general consensus is that Sword is the way to go.
Also, Improved Rend is terrible because Rend scales terribly. Increasing its damage isn't helping very much.
The sad thing is that this space could easily be for a build that actually explores new possibilities opened up by 2.3, instead of rehashing a build that hasn't improved since it was discarded after 2.1 fixed rage gen.

/script macros are now very heavily restricted, but you can still use them. They're just limited to giving you messages in your chat window, or speaking in chat channels, or doing other very limited things.
I didn't write this macro, but I can't remember where I got it. Probably WOWWiki (www.wowwiki.com) somewhere.
