Hunter's Can't use Melee Weapons..

General Discussion
Why are they still needing on everything that can. Melee weapons. Cloth, int leather, int mail, plate. I wanted to say something catchy here but i'm not in the mood.

Here is how i see hunters now. http://thechive.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/cat-saturday-18.jpg?w=1016&h=782

A mage stole a 463 spirit staff from me and then d/e'd it in front of me. It's not just hunters that ninja things >.>
Hunter my !@#$. I'm seeing everyone rolling need on anything that pops up that they CAN roll need on. It's weird.

I don't need everything yet they left the ability to use melee weapons in the book which.. is kind of half assed coding in my opinion. If your gonna do something to a class you better finish it.
If a person tells you that the DE'd it report them. Blizzard has banned people before for doing that for "Griefing."
If you can't beat them... join them..
Technically hunters CAN use melee weapons, they just aren't good for them.

But really, every class needs on things they don't need, you just tend to ignore it more when it's not a hunter doing it.

Edit: and @Hooyu - the reason they left hunters able to use melee weapons is so that hunters can still equip things like Lok'Delar and Thunderfury that they earned a long time ago for decorative purposes. Because many many hunters asked them to. Initially when they changed it hunters couldn't use melee weapons at all, and people complained, rightfully, that they wanted to still be able to equip these things they earned to show off.
I've lost a many of items, so it's not just Hunters..

I have had a pally ninja things off me, and also I have seen priests need on plate gear. This is a bug and should have been hotfixed ages ago.

Uh... honestly, i love that I could still equip a melee weapon on my Hunter.

For RP reasons.
