Jan 12th 2009 9:07PM You've hit the nail on the head. Blizzard is trying to make a world that pleases everyone but the truth is that "the world" is an unfair place. Crafting a perfect world that everyone thinks is just and fair is ultimately futile.
Still, Blizzard has done a lot for their customers in this area over the years. They're one of the few developers that actively listens to and responds to their communicative fans (Valve is another such company). Ghostcrawler is a pretty big factor in giving Blizzard that ability.

May 2nd 2008 1:40PM I love using quotes from Prince and Shade:
someone: "Do you think so-and-so can tank Prince?
me: "I don't know... you don't just fight him alone, but the legion he commands!"

I have powers of my own!
Ah crud, stop running
Madness brought you here
Face the legion I command!
They are hot statues....
Apr 26th 2008 5:47PM Someone in my guild had a fire alarm emergency too. He came back, got on Vent and we heard him say "*WERRR*Just *WERRR*a *WERRR*false *WERRR*alarm. *WERRR*I'm good.*WERRR*"
Apr 26th 2008 4:17PM I've heard talk that the Omen guy is way too nice to deserve the nastiness he receives from players. This interview pretty much proves it.
Apr 13th 2008 8:54PM Why don't we distill the snark into the question "What have you learned about developing the 2.4 compatible version?"

Apr 3rd 2008 6:45PM wowwiki has a great series of articles on how classes can use their skills to work together in a group, and how to help in a group in general.
Mar 29th 2008 9:02PM As someone who cares about environment, and a social scientist in training, I agree with everything you said. I wouldn't even call the act symbolic because it doesn't mean anything. It's a publicity stunt disguised as acting responsible.
Also: posting during earth hour lol.
