I haven't looked at the forums lately. However, when I skimmed it over today, it was filled with players putting pressure on Blizzard due to the anticipation for Cataclysm. It irks me how people can be so selfish they can keep asking for blue posts, when Blizzard explicitly stated that the forums are not for fishing for blues.
One person went as far as saying that Blizzard doesn't respect the player base because they don't respond to questions. Of course they wouldn't answer questions they're not sure about. When they postponed WotLK, the forums were in flames. Blizzard will get burned for posting information without solid confidence. How can Blizzard respect the players when the players don't respect Blizzard enough to give them some breathing space?
