Doing Shannox and getting roflstompped by "Seperation Anxiety" is a little perplexing.
"HMM an enrage mechanic that isn't listed in the dungeon journal... we are getting aggrivated 'yes we are'"

I had a tank the other day ask about what to do for a boss fight, I pointed him to it, the guy left rather than read it rofl.
although, a button to toggle off the boss buttons on the map will be super awesome.

either:Do you honestly need a blue to confirm B?
A) The Journal is accurate, I should trust it, and people are just making up stuff based on anecdotal experience, or
B) The Journal is incomplete, which means I cant trust it, and it becomes kind of useless as I will need to go online to understand the mechanics of the abilities anyways
Clarification on this would be welcome.
The purpose of the Dungeon Finder is simply to provide information in-game that is easy and accessible to everyone on the various bosses, their abilities and their loot. It is not there to provide strategies. We just wanted to give a solid starting point and foundation to everyone and let each group determine the best course of action from there.
I have to say this is an unfortunate failure of the dungeon journal. The players that truly need a dungeon journal aren't getting what they really need out of it.
Given my experience with raiding, I can easily translate the boss abilities into "well that needs a tank swap", or "we're going to have to spread out", or "maybe we should use a raid cooldown". Not all players can do this and lots of casual players would get more done without it. Unfortunately due to some elitist QQ from some "I don't do anything but play wow cry babies", players were disallowed a valuable resource.
And I ask myself, why do these guilds even care if some casuals have access to a boss ability that suggests a tank swap so some new players have a fighting chance. For the life of me, I don't know why it bothers them - because it sure doesn't bother me.
