We don't get to report on Blizzard's World of Warcraft very often on Massively, but when we do, the stories tend to drive the greater MMO fanbase into a frenzy. This week, our readers pulled no punches in debates over Blizzard's take on game accessibility, the WoW-fraud-related FBI raid on a University of Michigan dorm, and the curious case of the WoW player who level-capped sans quest or kill experience. (Of course, Massively devotees know that such a feat is not only possible but expected in dozens of smaller MMOs!)
In more meta news, Massively is hiring a news blogger! If you think you've got what it takes to join our intrepid crew, furbish up your spellchecker and check out our hiring post.
