Funny you say that. Here's my blizzard post:
Not that anyone will care, but I too have decided i hate wow. I'm
going to give my account away, but as of now - This game sucks. I
started playing thinking 'Woot, the WORLD of WARcraft' - I suffered
through the orignial pvp implementations, tried to force myself to
think that a 40v40 MMO battle REALLY was MMO, but its not. Even quake3
gives you more massive mutliplayer battles.

60 content seems to be mostly the 'world of waitcraft' - Standing
around for perfect instance groups, waiting 2 hours after login to
finally get into a BG thats just the southshore zerg with a few

So, I've met many nice people here - Others not so nice, but with that
i bid you all adieu, and wish you all the best. Even you bodybagger.

I suppose every game has its major major flaws :/
