Feb 25th 2011 1:32PM I have to strongly agree with Robin on this one. Lisa, your attitude on this "just report him and ignore him" is what's leading to the low standards on the internet today, not what the OP (for lack of a better term) did to the scammer. The OP actually did the morally correct thing to do instead of taking the easy way out. To quote an old saying, "it takes an entire village to raise a child." Reporting him would do nothing to teach him what he did was wrong, and even if it did it wouldn't teach him why. The only reason why he'd think its wrong is because he got banned (worst case scenario). That's not why what he did was wrong. He instead now knows the real why, which deals with morals and correct action when dealing with others. Learning that the way people treat each other on the schoolyard is incorrect at a young age like this will help him to be a better adult once he reaches that stage in life.
TL;DR: the quick solution is not always the correct one, and I think the OP did the right thing.

Feb 17th 2011 11:39AM To me there is a difference between making fun of something and misrepresentation.
I love making fun of things.
But even a comedy show people take seriously enough to get turned away by things like that. Personally I have no issue with public sex in a game or otherwise. I just figured it'd be appropriate to voice my opinion on the subject.
If you were going to make fun of something take a fact about the game and manipulate it to sound stupid. Don't just make an outright falsehood for the sake of doing it. If you do that change the name of the game to something that people would instantly think "oh hey, that's wow" not blatently call it by that.
That's my reasoning for doing that. I am not really that upset. I just don't want something that I enjoy so much to be misrepresented in the media. I see enough problems with sub cultures getting misrepresented that I am a part of and this just reeks of more of the same to me.
Feb 17th 2011 8:23AM I went to the CBS website and sent them feedback telling them that what they said in the program was wrong and asking them to correct it. I highly recommend everyone who reads this do the same.
Just look for "feedback" down at the bottom of the CBS page linked in the article above.
Feb 15th 2011 6:48PM If you stack mastery as a resto shaman like you should be then this patch was awesome, but if you stack crit (seriously, its a waste with the crit to actual % ratio right now), then you probably won't like it so much.
Remember mastery > crit in any situation as a resto shaman.
