Fire mage dps is now dropping drastically, look at the original post for details. It is now statistically supported.
Using your same links, Fire is still doing much better than other specs in heroics. So, what's the issue again? That you're not #1?
Go sell your sob story for Balance Druids, I'm sure they would LOVE to hear you complain about damage right now...
First off, thank you for your constructive post.
Thirdly, while gear certainly helps fire (gear helps any spec) people in heroics are a very small percentage of people playing the game therefore parses for normal modes matter a LOT more. That being said, fire mages are definitely not doing "much better" than any other spec.
Fourth, then maybe boomkins should be buffed as well?
