For one, yes, [[http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=20677635725 plenty of things have \\\"ruined\\\" the game before]], but these were all in-game changes. This is different, in that it has real life consequences for those who post on the forums. Already, people\\\'s personal information has been posted in-game and people have been harassed in real life thanks to us being able to see the full names of friends of friends with the in-game [=RealID=] feature, and when community manager Bashiok posted his full name as a show of good faith to the community, people quickly found his address, phone number, as well as his age and the names of and ages of people living with him, and started harassing him. No other change that has \\\"ruined\\\" the game has had real-life consequences like this, and this time, people have actually started canceling their accounts in reaction.

And while we may not be \\\"forced\\\" to go on the forums, what if we want to go on our realm forum to look for a guild or post an advertisement for our own guild? What if we want to let people on our realm forum know about a ninja-looter? Or what if we are having technical issues, can\\\'t get through to Blizzard on the phone, and want to post in the technical support forum so we can, you know, start playing again? We may not be forced to use the fora, but there are plenty of legitimate situations where it would be a good idea to do so, and now many people won\\\'t feel comfortable doing so because of this change.
