Drayner makes a very good argumant regardless on your position on twinking. I recommend that you disregard your views on the subject while reading the open letter to actually understand the trouble this little meta game has gone through. We've basically had to manage it by ourselves since WSG came out.
@Epsilon343: I thought the purpose of the game was to get to max level and gear up for character to the teeth to be the most efficient you can be at the particular field you're intested in (either PvE or PvP). Twinking is similar to the goal many hold at max level but just at a lower level cap. 19/29/39 ect is our level cap which we chose. We've geared our characters to the teeth and made ourselves as efficient in our field of play as possible. I don't see the logic in that argument when all twinking is is just doing what everyone should be doing but at a lower level.
I do think that most of the hatred towards twinks would just be through the bad experiences of going into a BG while leveling and getting your behind handed to you. Just to let most of you know, I'd like to see you try and make a 10v10 non-twink BG match if twinks ever get destroyed. Leveling BGs would be dead without twinks.

That is all.
Nov 10th 2008 8:04AM I've read your colums for a long time and I enjoy them a whole lot. Just wanted say that I think that you're doing a fine job at writting about this yo-yo class. Can't wait to charge people obscene amounts of gold for Dalaran portals. Our own payback for anyone who took our food for granted? :D
Keep it up. I'm looking forward to your analysis of the mage while you go through the LK content.
