Aug 25th 2009 2:33PM If these were journalists and not bloggers, I'd lend credence to your argument... HOWEVER, as they are 'bloggers' — it is their opinions that we are reading.
Using your example of 'Journalism exists to provide information' I have to ask: where's the information? Oh, private servers exist and here's some random guys opinions on it? It's not wow.com's responsibility to police the actions of its readers, you're right: but they do have a responsibility to be a little less cavalier in their approach to an ongoing problem: the hacking and cheating that exists in all MMOs (not just WoW).
Aug 25th 2009 1:38PM True journalism? Are you kidding me? Where's the balance? This is just 20 questions with no regards to what the implications of these servers are.
Please note: 'Bloggers' are NOT 'journalists' — but thanks for trying.
Aug 25th 2009 1:34PM Great job Lisa and wow.com editors! Let's get everyone interested in private servers and the 'free gear and levels' and '3x XP' they offer. How about the fact that they are illegal? Is wow.com's stance "oh, it's okay because we mentioned they violate the EULA"?
It's not JUST that they violate the EULA... they actively hack the code to make their servers. These are the same kind of people that are hacking accounts, stealing your gold, deleting your characters and dropping hundreds of dead gnomes into URL messages.
Don't just say "we don't condone" — set an example and say what a bad, bad idea it is to support such practices.

Jun 4th 2009 10:40AM I can't wait to see them, personally.
Even though I spend 99.9% of time while raiding in tree form, I do go kitty when out and farming. ^_^
