I've seen threads posting about only ever seeing mail, I've seen threads about only ever seeing cloth, I've seen threads about only ever seeing DPS plate.

Exactly. People remember the times they got shafted on loot more than they remember when they got an upgrade. I was just whining in a dungeon with my guildies the other day about how I've run a specific dungeon for my helm over and over and it won't drop and how bad my luck is, yet I've got my two piece of two Sha kills, got my 470 direbrew trinket off the first run, got my archeo OH after 5 solves, and generally had good luck overall. With so many spots to fill, it's easy to forget about the upgrades along the way, but really hard to forget missing out on those last few items you need that never drop.
It's just so unbelievably easy to get loot at the moment. Possibility of 2 tier pieces and 100% chance of epic boots of Sha which is a joke to kill. Valor neck and ring at honored for Klaxxi and Lotus, more when you hit revered. Dungeons are generally reallllly easy to just burn through, so yeah it's tedious but it's not difficult.
You'll get your gear eventually. Everyone has different experiences with the loot drops. Personally I feel like I've seen a lot of drops for everyone on my runs, and have had decent luck with cloth. As far as my helm goes, I see a lot of spirit helms or non cloth items I can't use, but that doesn't mean the loot system is broken after one week of data.
