Topic Dailies enough is enough.
Sorry I hit level 90 to stop questing not to be forced to do it everyday at max level on multiple characters. I think the only time I ever forced myself to do dailies for rep was when you decided to make a 365ilvl Trinket (Moonwell Chalice) the most OP thing in the world for raiding as a Demo Lock.
Bring back the Rep Tabards and let me grind dungeons aka something I'm already doing for gear. I did this for every rep on Cata cause being forced to go to 3 different Zones and keep up with Dailies every single day is really retarded.
I hit 90 to stop questing not to do more of it.

I like doing dailys, but I hope you realize that "2-3 hours" worth of dailys sounds extreme, even to a no-life having basement dweller like myself.
Edit: 2-3 hours by itself isn't a long session, but consider how most people have multiple alts they would like to gear. Even one alt converts that 2-3 hours of dailys into 4-6 hours.

Yeah, I strongly agree with the OP. Dailies have been a horrible time-waster ever since they were introduced in BC, and now you're expected to do them every day for weeks/months on end? Ditto with reputation grinds - the faction tabards were introduced in WOTLK for a reason.
The main problem with daily quests is that
- they are mind-numbingly repetitive (yeah, even if there is some random factor in them, or if you're doing them on a pvp server)
- they are trivially easy and offer no challenge (once people get out of levelling greens anyway)
- they take way too long to do. Seriously, 2-3h a day for ONE character? My daily playtime is half that, and I want to do things that are actually FUN in that time. Dungeons, LFR, PVP - all good. Not to mention I typically play 3 characters at max level for variance.
In the end, rep-grinding / dailies gets you... some gear that is inferior to what you can get from heroics, LFR, and pvp. I haven't done the math on what it takes to max multiple factions for the epic VP stuff, but I assume it's depressing.
I like this expansion a lot (the questing was surprisingly fun for a change), but come on.
