Dear Orgruk - Malorne,

Oh, there's a special place in MMO Hell for you, sir. Using your "insta Q" to get away from a gank, leaving the rest of the group you just took advantage of in the lurch. At least tank the nine-minute dungeon for us while we're here, or don't gloat about your "clever" escape and leave. I would have assumed you just didn't want to do the dungeon if you didn't say anything.

I hope you get corpse-camped all night. I also hope your repair bill is astronomical.

No love at all,
the DK

Dear Blizzard,

Let it be known that henceforth you are forgiven for the Invincible music scroll thing.

Dear leet pvp strategists,

Will you kindly stop throwing the game as soon as the enemy caps a single flag in Warsong Gulch, or gets three bases in Arathi Basin or whatever the equivalent in each battleground?!

That's perfectly possible to come back from!

I wouldn't care if it was just you sitting in the graveyard, at least we could get rid of you by afk reporting your asses. But you then somehow manage to shame and bully half the team into joining you, so the rest of us who actually came here to pvp and not get carried have no other fate than dying horribly against massively superior numbers.

Wishing attacking your own team was allowed,

Dear Blizzard:

Dropping a music scroll named "Invincible" off Heroic 25m Lich King is just WRONG.

Dear healer:
I dunno where the hell you got your sense of entitlement, but being a healer doesn't magically give you the right to decide how my character looks. If you use a reflecting prism on me, I'm gonna click it off. Multiple times. Even when you stop healing me. Even if you make some thinly-veiled threat about 'I'd leave the illusion on if someone else was deciding who lived or died.' And if you keep it up, I will leave. I'm a tank. My queues are instant. Can the same be said for you?

Kindly choke on the reflecting prism you're so badly abusing,
The Draeneidin

Dear Asshole Pally,

I don't even know if you were Horde or Alliance, but thank you SO VERY MUCH for kiting a Void Terror over while I was trying to kill the final quest mob in the Twisting Nether in Nagrand. I'd already died more than enough times between lag and pulling more than I could handle. I needed the addition to my already-sizeable repair bill because of it. Thanks to your generosity, I died while trying to turn in the quest so I could get the hell out of that area.

Sincerely,
The belf pally trying to get to 100

Dear WoWFic-Fan,

Replying to a post with what is essentially the post but with a name changed in an effort to make a point does not a point make. It's terribly juvenile, and had nothing to offer except to start a fight that had no purpose in being started. I'm sure the fic author is glad for your support, but the point was completely missed and was incredibly disrespectful to two authors.

Sorry that no one seems to back the idea of the Kaldorei being written as a race that would participate in cultural genocide, among other incredibly distressing things... even in an alternate universe that feels less alternate than it does fetishy.

(I don't know if fic falls into here, but it is relating to WoW... though depressingly so.)

Dear ranty RPer,

I think it's time you step away from the computer. Go for a nice, refreshing walk. Have a nap. A soothing cup of tea. A nice, relaxing bubble bath. Whatever works for you.

I get that you've had an expansion of everyone hanging in their faction's Shrine and now another one of everyone hanging in their garrison, so you've had free run of the old world. But there's currently a world event going on, so people are gonna come back and trample all over the place. And sometimes it really can be a case of that last straw, but...

Maybe you were a little bit over the top when you exploded at me, telling me that stupid losers like me need to get the hell out of RP servers, ruining the game and breaking the lore. Because my warlock was mounted on the emerald drake, while waiting for the SW boat in Rut'theran village. Because the green flight is druidic and pure and nature aligned, and would never have anything to do with warlocks.

Yes, I may have been too gaudy to be IC, but you can't really expect all clothies to be wearing nothing but the Gossamer or Durable looks and ride their plainest mounts whenever they need to pop in to Kalimdor/EK.

Backing away slowly,
sincere_pain
