Why do people post these? We have all seen it a million times already. Does anyone care?

NO.
I just signed up (opted in) for the beta on Blizzard's website, using my authenticator and everything. I ran the system check as well.

Not more than 2 minutes after I did that, I received this exact same message in my gmail inbox (not spam box).

Hmmmmmmmm
Many of the fake emails pass through the junk filter this isn't new.
Why do people keep posting these? This isn't the forum too and nobody cares. If it's not real don't post !@#$.
All of these threads should be removed and if anyone posts one it should be a 24H temp ban. This is effing retarded! Just report it to blizz the PROPER WAY and leave it at that. FFS.

My point is that I received the email IMMEDIATELY after opting in.

But you guys don't care, you're too busy standing on your soap boxes and looking down your noses.

Would you idiots stop trolling about your fake beta emails, really.

Your point has no point. Blizz will never ask for your password. NEVER! They have it already. Thus, I still stand by my point. and if you wanna replay to it, go a head. JUST STOP POSTING THEM HERE!

I can tell some of you guys work loss prevention somewhere.

Angry much? lol
