I've decided to stop maintaining the BM guide on EJ (and wowhead as I won't be doing the work anyway) as of 5.3.
I don't see a reason to do work on something that elicits the sort of vehement personal attacks I've seen from simply not having agreed with 3 other users work (actually only 2 I believe) before even being presented with the premise.
Even with a diligent moderation staff, I've still read the posts, and the attacks still fulfilled their purpose - and I have no reason to believe that they will stop.
I was tempted to follow a suggestion in the last post - to simply delete the work - but that would be unfair to both those that use it, as well as whoever would possibly be selected to take over - I'm a bigger man than that.

Add to the attacks that I've been playing very little since 5.2 hit and since the raid group fell apart, and I just don't see the idea in trying to maintain interest in writing a guide anymore - it was fun for 1½ expansions, not so fun for the last week.

Now I just have to find out if I'll actually start playing again any time soon.


I for one found your guide useful on my alt a few tiers ago. Thanks for writing it!

And I've found it useful ever since you picked it up. Thanks for your efforts there!

I hope they don't con Z into picking it up, she does too much already. But I fear one of the Simheads will pick it up, which means it will become as arcane to regular players as the MM guide. EJ really isn't what it used to be. The entire priest section is dead except for two nitwits maintaining a running battle able disc mana management or something like that.

1h49 minutes on Durumu (in theory, farm boss). We joked on tank channel that maybe we should go play some Monster Hunter.

The kicker? When RL says "Everyone should give himself a slap in the face". Hu? Hello? A-game so far here? And closes the kill on a "good job everyone".

*grumbles*

EDIT oh, and forgot to mention how apparently the maze "disappeared" at range. Yeah. Right. Disappearing.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

logged in this morning real quick to do the anglers dailies, thinking they'd be the last ones I need to do to get exalted and get my fancy waterstrider. Got the DMF buff, flew back, did quests.

200 rep left! doh!

Don't worry, it's so worth it. It's the most important faction rep this expansion. That waterstrider is so useful, I'd be inclined to make it my default, if it wasn't so hideous. My monk is using it a lot while leveling - e.g. makes the coastal trip from Theramore to Tanaris much less obnoxious.

I hadn't had much use for it on the 2 toons I play most until IoT (potions of water running I used occasionally, but not often)... man water-running makes getting around that place easier.

Playing a DK main these days, I agree with you.

I'll probably farm the rep for one as soon as I start working on a non-dk char.

The lock glyph that lets you run on water with your class mount is even sexier.

Even the BRk forums got a bit messy at the end. Wish there was a hunter equivalent of howtopriest.com, which has the perfect mix of theorycrafting and still allowing noob questions. Very similar to here.

Recruitment.

Three Warlock apps in the past week. We're a 9hr/wk HM Progression Guild.

.None have WoL. Ran some dungeons with two of them. 30k and 50k average DPS in a Heroic Dungeon. =|
.One in full PVP gear, no PVE gear. At all. "I DEed it all, PVP gear has better bonuses anyway." /twitch
.Two have had unenchanted items on for over three weeks.
.One was quite possibly the most toxic, racist person I have ever had the misfortune of typing/speaking to.

It would almost be amusing if the majority of potential recruits and new applicants didn't make me want to chemically castrate them for the good of the future.

My Fitness Pal is going to HATE ME today.

I busted my ass all morning. Burned 1200+ Calories.

That means, the stupid app is going to want me to eat 2k+ calories today. I felt miserable yesterday after indulging in pizza for a celebration of my kid's Grades. (my youngest two brought home straight A's, making it 3 grading periods in a row that they have both done so)

I felt miserable, and I still didn't even go over my calorie goal for the day (now at 1650).

How int he world and I going to find enough "healthy" food to eat 2k+ calories? I just had 400 for lunch, and I'm stuffed.

Whoa whoa whoa. Wait. Don't force yourself to eat food just to maintain a caloric balance that MFP is going to be happy with. There are ebbs and flows to every single food plan and even if you burn a shitton of calories in one day it doesn't mean you need to compensate by eating all those calories back. (Plus like you said, you indulged yesterday, so if anything, today's your "balance it out" day.)

Although what the heck were you doing to burn 1200 calories? I could run for two hours straight and I wouldn't be able to burn that.

For today, eat only if you're hungry. Easy thing to boost your calories up if you're actually feeling famished: apples and bananas are around 100 calories each. Add some peanut butter to either of those and your calories will jump as well (plus it's healthy fat mixed with fruit so there's nothing to feel bad about).

I know. I don't want to eat more just to compensate.

The app seems to get "mad" if I eat less than 1200 calories, or leave 800 or more calories if I exercise. After meeting with my doctor, he told me to make sure that I don't have the app telling me that I'm not eating enough, so I've been trying to stick with that, but on days like today, I just can't even fathom trying to eat that much.

As far as the calories burnt,
1200 Calories burnt = back breaking labor moving, pulling, packing, etc... lots of items into boxes, weighing them, and the like. The closest thing I could find in the app is Moving Household items, carrying boxes. All told, I have 700 pounds of stuff going out UPS that is there because I got it all from the warehouse, and packed it, and I've probably got another 400 pounds going Mail. And the day isn't over yet.

As the E-commerce guy, I have to pull, pack, and all that jazz anything and everything I sell. So today:

20 Mower Transmissions = 16 pounds each. From the top shelf in the warehouse. So that's up the ladder, get 2, bring em down, put em on the cart, and up and down and up and down, until I have all 20 of them.
14 ATV Tires = 12 pounds each. Similar to what I did with the transmissions, but only up the ladder half as far. OH yeah, and moving the ladder from one end of the warehouse to the other. (while this sounds trivial, it's a 90,000 SQ FT Warehouse, and a 15 ft ladder. After getting the transmissions, I felt like I was in Slow mo)

That was the big stuff. Then all the headlights, brake stuff, misc small tires, Scooter Trunks, and what not. Once I have it all on carts, I take it back to my office, load them all in boxes, pack them, put them on the scale, get them weighed and labeled, get them back on carts, and take the carts where they have to go. Took me 3 hours to get it all done. I put it in the app as 90 minutes, since there were times when I wasn't doing anything strenuous (sitting at the comp printing labels, taping boxes, putting labels on.

Then, later, I'll have to load the mail in my car (I don't think it's going to fit), and take it up to the post office, and put it on carts there, because our small town post office wont give us a daily pick up unless we pay $15 a day, or schedule it online. (Yes. that's what I want to do schedule a pickup for an unknown amount of boxes every freaking day.... They love the "unknown qty".)

I'm a regular one man wrecking crew of E-Commerce around here lately. It's :15 till 2pm here, and I'm just now finishing up my lunch, and getting to the part where I get to edit pics, and get stuff on the site, and ebay. I don't think I'm going to get to work on my new shopping cart software at all today. Or tomorrow.

It's crazy. I feel like I get a better workout some days at work than I do playing baseball, or walk/jogging/running. It's hard to get people to understand what a day of "busy" is here for me. Today, I'm just wearing the Shipping hat, and a little of the "Data Entry Hat". Tomorrow I'm going to try and wear the programmer hat a little more, and maybe the marketing hat. But, knowing my luck, I'll have to put on the IT hat because it's been too long without a problem.

EDIT:
One more thing. I have this awesome blender. it's called a Ninja. (I also have the smaller "Bowl" size blade and container as well)

One of my Desserts of choice lately, has been to take a frozen banana, and just a little milk (like... maybe 1 - 1 1/2 TBSP), Chunk the banana, and put the milk in with it. BLEND BLEND BLEND.

It ends up coming out like Soft Serve Ice Cream. I'm not a huge fan of the Banana Taste, but I can top it with some fresh fruit, and pretend it's a DQ Blizzard.

I've had a pretty huge crush on the Anzu mount ever since he was introduced, so i use that on all my chars.

I definitely have a separate binding though for the lock mount just so I can run on water.

Police chief got his laptop hijacked with that stupid fbi screen thanks to his kid, and he questions my ability to fix it because all i am doing is read comics on my ipad while i let all the programs fo its work.

He thinks that slamming my fingers on the keyboard will somehow make the scans go faster...

Frustration 1: Finding 5 warbringers last night but not being able to kill any of them due to lack of a DK tank to team with (given up trying to find a non-DK tank, healer, and other dps, nor am I interested in becoming a kite-master and soloing as a hunter, since that takes about 20 min... and several of the spots don't have room for that).

Frustration 2: Access here from work is going to be cut off soon. Tested the new proxy server they are going to deploy, and a ton of new sites, including this one, are gone.
