From the #1 Cata review on Amazon.com: "Blizzard's greatest misstep was blaming players instead of admitting their mistakes.
They've convinced half of the population that the other half are unskilled whiners, causing a permanent rift in the community."
We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us
so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid,
or we can let them soften us, and make us kinder.
We always have the choice.
I always found the pets pathetic in that manner. They shouldn't be used in combat\pvp\dungeons\raids. Its just ridiculous being in an arena or raiding 25, and having balloons, orphans and pink elephants about, cluttering the screen even more.
Personally i find it ridiculous, prance around in town all you want, but hey, to each his own.
I have the balloon on all of my toons and I pretty much have it out constantly. I've never been asked to remove it though.
I used to walk around Orgrimmar and roleplay that the balloon whispered me terrible things, that freaked people out a bit.
1. Left click.
2. Hold it. Did you let go? Go back to 1.
3. Move your mouse.
4. Let go of left button.
if you think the balloon is annoying wait until beta when all the locks have the big flying eyeball pet out >_< FML that fills up the screen as a melee/tank >_<
Seems to be mostly 12 year olds that like pets. Surely if you see a player with a pet in a dungeon, you excuse yourself because it's going to fail? See the positives in a negative, the pets are telling you something. RUN.

If you are complaining about Vanity Pets in dungeons, wait till MoP, when your healer and tank undergoes a spontaneous pet battle right before a boss.
When people run around with their cookied pets in an instance and I'm tanking it, I usually don't mind it. However if/when I do, I ask them to remove it because it messes up targeting and I don't want to tab around like a retard just to find the right target to mark.
And if they bitch and moan or try to troll me, I just simply kick them. :P It's hilarious because people press the Accept button 90% of the time.
haha, i must say i am suprised, i have not yet heard this one. But if you hate it so much, just ask people to stop useing it, I know 87% of people in wow wont, but the 13 % will do it
(i am 20 and dyslexic so yes i suck at spelling)
I don't understand how vanity pets mess up targeting? Are you people clicking the actual characters that run around for targeting? Maybe the problem is in something else than the little pet...
Isn't it immature that you call him Donald "Dump"?
I agree, it's childish and stupid - and that's my point. it's meant as a deliberate mockery of his blatant disrespect via using "Crooked Hillary", and thus I can call him "Dump" since he dumps his campaign promises, dumps campaign managers, dumps his wives, wants to dump the first amendment, dumps common-sense war ethics and dumps the use of proper English in favor of a mongrel white-trash dialect.

I think the real issue here is that there are balloons floating around that are capable of devouring and digesting biscuits.
