This is part of a post from the WoW forums:*
Quote:
Shadow is just a recommended leveling spec, its very possible to level with disc or holy but, its not recommended for the fact that a majority of your spells are heals and whatever damaging spells you do have won't give you the benefit of the doubt.
[emphasis mine]

To borrow a phrase from the political punditry by which I'm so commonly entertained, this person seems dangerously ignorant of what the phrase 'the benefit of the doubt' means. In context, I'm honestly not sure what the person is trying to get at with the phrase. It seems that he means something more than just 'the same benefit,' but what that might be escapes me.

Seriously, if DC needs more motivation for fixing our schools, I point to this post. The post was (more or less) grammatically correct, but I feel like the above misuse of this phrase indicates a systemic ignorance that we all ought to find frightening. (unless, of course, you hate America... like some of you clearly do)

Mayhap I should give the person the benefit of the doubt...

* This is not a gaming post, and I don't plan to make a habit of quoting the WoW forums.

Look, it doesn't matter what your average WoW scrub knows or doesn't know. As long as he spends his money in America and votes the way smart people tell him to.

I almost agree with this. It would be better for everyone if they were less ignorant, and unfortunately people don't always vote the way the right smart people tell them to.
