If that were the case the baddies would have had more than a box-cutter. If they let people carry, say guns on a plane, even if the hijackers used another passenger as a shield, and put a gun to their head, would another armed passenger try a shot? In a pressurized plane? Maybe the flight that crashed in PA wouldn't have crashed, but I do think weapons on planes would cause more injuries and deaths over time.

They're gouging the hell out of casual players. When was the last time they ever added anything for casuals, (read: those who don't have to "clock in" for a raid or arena)

I haven't been paying attention for the last 14 months, but in the 3 years I played, the only and last one was Dire Maul.

Also, if you've been playing since release and bought the expansions, you've paid $700 (50 mo x 15 + 50 x 2). Since when was $700 reasonable for a game?

You can do every quest, instance and raid in the new xpac with 10 or less people. I feel I've gotten more than $700 worth from the game and I have rarely played more than 10 hours per week since the release of BC. I have saved hundreds by not buying console games that I knew I would not play because of WoW. If you are still buying other games, it probably isn't worth that much money.
