and by the way ... they have a leader ... King Varian Wrynn stands for all the high elves that remained in the south during the 3rd war... also Jaina Proudmoore and Rhonin (former) as leaders of the Kirin Tor... especially through Rhonin Kirin Tor High Elves where able to keep their elven pride, rhonins wife is one of them.
i believe in the honor and loyality of the high elves then can reemerge to glory!
also as i already stated earlier in this post: i see the high elves much more connected to humans due to them living close to each other as well as their interbreedability.
it's like living next door .. also - i've already stated - that most of todays high elves might be half elves per se...

if my leader would tell me that, i'd be pretty pissed ...
still, all the elves that weren't around silvermoon at that time should see the situation differently.
