Aug 6th 2010 7:39PM Sadly your comment has nothing to do with the article and it makes you look like some sort of viral advertiser...so I can't take what you say seriously.
Aug 6th 2010 7:35PM With that type of attitude I'd not want to be in a group with you either. This article isn't promoting scrub behavior whatsoever, instead it's offering suggestions on how to deal with group members that are exhibiting said scrub behavior. It just so happens that the tank was the one singled out by the mage and shaman that wrote to the column. Nobody here is saying that tanks are the only ones that act like jerks, it's just being stated that when tanks are the jerks it has a profound impact on the rest of the group.
Going around saying that every DPS and healer you come across are "bad" or "terrible" just makes you look like you're a candidate for the subject of the column and doesn't lend you any credit to your case.

You said that tanking is the least fun job in a group. In my experience if you call the part you play in a group a "job" then it's time to call it quits and take up something else for a while to unwind.
Yeah tanking can be a pretty thankless role and a lot of pressure is placed upon tanks as a whole(pardon my rhyming). But the same can be said for every role in the party/raid. DPS is what burns down the mobs while the tank keeps the mobs occupied and Healers are what keep everyone alive to make sure they can rinse and repeat the process. Every role deserves a "thank you" if they're performing as they should and contributing to the success of the run and kudos should be given to those that perform above and beyond their chosen role. "Hey that mob got loose someone get it before the healer goes splat!" "Good job on that freezing trap, polymorph, hex, stun...now let's finish clearing this place."
Don't go looking for recognition for playing out your chosen role, just be gracious and thankful if it does come your way.
Aug 5th 2010 3:30PM If your account security is important enough to you then you'd throw down the cost of the authenticator plus shipping. That goes for anything. If something is important enough to you, you'll do what's necessary to protect it.
Aug 5th 2010 3:12PM If the Curse client were really at fault then hundreds upon hundreds more players would be vulnerable to it's insidious shenanigans. However seeing as that's not the case at all that means your other online activities were the cause of the account hack and subsequently your paranoia and insecurities associated with the hacking.
Blaming anyone or anything else but yourself when your account gets hacked is the hallmark of irresponsibility and shows an unwillingness to admit your own mistakes.

Jul 21st 2010 9:28PM I think you might be on to something with the "chaos elemental" idea.
The Old Gods' claim to fame is the Curse of Flesh which made the sentient inhabitants of Azeroth what they are today...soft squishy flesh and blood beings. Ever since "fleshies" became the dominant life forms of Azeroth, war and turmoil became synonymous with their very existence. In short, they brought chaos to the ordered world of post-Titan Azeroth.
By constantly warring with each other and the subsequent collateral damage done to the planet because of it the Alliance and the Horde are, in small part, helping to accomplish what the Old Gods cannot do from the confines of their prisons. The Twilight's Hammer members are just more active in helping to spread the chaos.
