TBC Area Ganking

What's the deal with so many max level players ganking in the TBC areas? Is there something going on, is that the new "thing"? Just wondering if I was missing out on some world PVP fun or if it was just some recent interest in Area 52 for the obvious joy of just being that general area.

Area 52 has old PvP vendors, broken guards, and is in a Cross Realm Zone.

After spending some more time trying to quest in the area, I noticed that there were lots of max level players willing to chase questers all the way to a questing area to one-shot them. There are even some who fly around from questing area to questing area killing players 20+ levels below themselves.

Thinking, "Hey, that must be really fun, because they're not getting honor or rep... and on the surface it seems like an incredible waste of everyone's time. So it HAS to be fun." I decided to log onto one of my max level characters and go to the various starting zones. Once there, I just AOE'd all of the players who were trying to figure out how to run and stuff.

It's not as much fun as you guys make it out to be. Am I doing it wrong? :(

You have to enjoy making other people mad, else it's pointless. For those of us with a soul, it's not fun camping low level players. It's much more fun to grab a level appropriate character and have a real fight, because win or loose, it was longer than that 1 second cast time on your 90.
