Was going through some of the old WoW forum threads out of boredom when I stumbled across this gem. It was written by the legendary Grungast of Elune, who seems to have disappeared with Deathwing, but he's authored some of the most hilarious Paladin posts in the day (see http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2140451044), and I figured it would be a shame to see this one die out.
As divisive as the community is about GC (I like him, some people don't), if you played before Wrath of the Lich King, you'll remember a time when the community stood united against the Wrath...of the Kalgan and his legendary Nerf-bat. I post this not to incite more QQ amongst the GC haters (but it probably will, tbh), but as a reminder that as far as the game has gone in its tenure, some things change, some things don't, but we all deserve a laugh at how things turn out.
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I logged on, weak and weary,

lol. I've never read that post but it's pretty damn brilliant.
No one that played before Wrath could ever know about the Wrath of Kalgan. The devs truly for some reason hated Paladins being anything other than healers and absolutely loathed the idea of making us viable as a damage dealing class.
GC isn't even in the same galaxy as the devs of old. He at least tries to make every class somewhat relevant, the developers back in the day would have been happy to absolutely cut 2/3 of our speccs from the game completely and laughed at us for it.
I do not miss those devs at all.
Everquest, they were butthurt over Everquest paladins.
Butthurt is a good word. They could have have recognized that they were in a different game and simply designed it different with the comfort that EQ was behind them, instead of being blinded by the butthurt.
Same guys that were ok with warriors 1 shotting mages.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
