You either don't know what the word incumbent means, or you live in a world where white is black and black is white. Incumbents spend a lot of money trying to DE-regulate stuff so they can do whatever they want. Hopefully I won't get censored this time.

That's the most idiotic thing I have read so far, congratulations. Surely if regulation was such a good thing for the incumbents they wouldn't be spending so much money trying to have politicians deregulate with said lobbyists. Awesome way of making an argument in reverse buddy!!!
Jan 14th 2011 5:13PM As a UK Solicitor, you have very little idea of how bad things are in the US. Where people have been brainwashed into believing that businesses interests are on an equal par as individual interests. As a result they have been voting against their own self interests for a while now. This arm-waving you speak of is actually not that far away from actually becoming reality in the US.
I understand this site is not only geared towards US readers, and there is a point to be made that maybe the author has but scratched the surface of the topic at hand. But the correlation between both is Wow and internet neutrality is a valid one. If you don't want to read "interest" pieces you can go somewhere else.

Sep 7th 2008 3:00AM Nobody seems to have noticed or cares that they have moved elemental precision and that now we fire mages are going to have to sacrifice 36 points of dmg to cap spell hit. Unless I am missing something.

"Fire mages are not forced to chain-chug mana pots during most boss fights and that is a problem in Blizzard's eyes."
You must be either using sarcasm in this comment or you actually haven't raided as a fire mage ever. Fire mages have all sorts of mana problems albeit less mana problems than say arcane mages in their current form. We don't need any more "mana preasure" thank you.
