Re-read your own sentence again. "Arthas wrecked the joint." The few remaining humans of Lordaeron were busy enough trying to survive themselves from the remains of Arthas' attack and his scourge plaguing the land, it's ridiculous to think they were in the position to help anyone at that point.
Humans from other kingdoms? Tough luck, the lands leading to Quel'thalas were plagued and infested with scourge, nothing could really be done by anyone to help the elves at that time.
High Elves understand this and thus they extremely loyal to the Alliance today. The Blood Elves on the other hand just threw a tantrum for stupid reasons and decided to join the Horde out of snide, or at least that's how it's portrayed while leveling in Eversong.

ABERRATION! What you have done here, Illûvatar... it goes against the laws of the english language. Disgusting is the only word I have to describe it.

Where do you want your internets delivered.
Apr 11th 2010 1:47PM "Their actions are hardly forgivable in the case of the humans, but one has to keep in mind that the crux of the conflict between the two was a matter of perception; the humans viewed the Forsaken as creatures no better than the mindless Scourge that had wiped out a good chunk of the population. The Forsaken assumed that the hostilities were something that could never be overcome, and so instead of trying to reach some sort of reasonable accord, they simply killed everything that stood in their way."
Except they were overcome. After Detheroc was killed and the mind control on Garithos and his forces in Lordaeron was dispelled, they ALLIED the Forsaken to retake Capital City from the dreadlord Balnazzar. It was Sylvanas and her undead who after the battle betrayed the humans and took Capital City for their own. It's not a matter of perception, things were very clear, the Forsaken willingly made themselves enemies of the Lordaeron forces there and by extension the new current Alliance and Scarlet Crusade.
Jan 20th 2010 7:14PM "Doomhammer was influential as the first step away from a demon-controlled horde in their history."
Yeah. Because consorting with Gul'dan, using warlocks and their magic to create the first generation Death Knights, and relying so much on that fel magic that the moment Gul'dan and his warlocks left the battle it costed them the war completely proves how far away they were from being dependant, controlled by that taint.
Doomhammer was not a hero. He was an animal. And the 'New' Horde does have a long way to go to change, but they clearly are not interested in traveling that road seenin they keep worshipping their genocidal heroes.

Listen well boy, how much you make does not change the fact that money has a value. Your $10 an hour salary may make you think 15 a month is trivial, but it is not.
Remember these words as you grow up: Every dollar has a worth, and even the biggest sum is made of small numbers together.

Jul 1st 2009 1:45AM Kokigomi, the Silver Covenant begs to differ.
And so does every high elf in Stormwind, Theramore, and other Alliance locations.
What happened to Silvermoon was very unfortunate. If only Lordaeron and most of it's territory hadn't been decimated right before Arthas marched to Silvermoon things would have been different, yet somehow that seems to be our fault. The elves were still in the Alliance after that though, and what really caused the defection of most of them was Garithos' mistreatment and lies and Lady Vashj's plotting.
Learn about the actual events before you correct someone, there's more to the lore than what NPCs in your own faction say. 'Specially' what blood elf NPCs say.
