Comment of the Week: Ron Was Wrong About WoW Not Being Dumbed Down
This was a great week of comments, everybody. Just excellent work all around. It was so good, in fact, that it was hard to find a contribution from our community that really separated itself from the wonderful pack. It felt like I was going to have to pick one at random, until I stumbled upon a new non-spam comment on a post managing editor Ron Whitaker put up on March 5, 2008 titled “Don’t Worry, Blizzard Isn’t Dumbing Down World of Warcraft.” Here’s the comment in question, posted Wednesday by one “anona”:
“Don’t Worry, Blizzard Isn’t Dumbing Down World of Warcraft” Well Four years has passed, and YOU’RE WRONG. The game has progressively Streamlined (a marketing PR term that means dumb down) with every new addition.
Though this person gets the number of years between then and now wrong (we’re at five and a half, rather than four), that s/he made that comment on a post that old is a truly awesome and epic necro job. Sure, somebody also commented on it last year, but this is still a big deal.
Side note: that post has 491 comments, so I welcome more folks to the necro party if it will push it over 500. Bring it on.
