Sorry but what did the picture say?
Did you skip the trash with the /camp macro while jumping at the same time?
ikr... truly depressing. people shouldn't have shared the info in LFR and it would've went another 2 weeks lol. oh wells, was awesome while it lasted.
It says that you can't skip ji'kun trash anymore cause they put a wall right on the edge of the waterfall.
IIRC that's the part where you can skip the Ji Kun trash. I heard, while watching Treckie's stream, that you can't skip the trash any more on the US servers.
I think that's the point OP is trying to make, not sure.
Picture shows nothing.
If you're talking about the Trash Skip, I spoke with a Game Master a few weeks ago, and he confirmed it wasn't an exploit, and was perfectly fine to use, although they obviously didn't intend for it to be used. I only mention this, as there seems to be a lot of hate towards those that use it, and I get a lot of threats of being banned because of it.
Edit; If they've removed this, i'm going to be fucking pissed off. Not because of the skipping of the trash itself, but because this is one of the stupidest things to fix. I bet the time it took to put a wall in, and texture it, and to test if you couldn't jump it, took longer then it would to fix that damn Pre-Tortos Cinematic you can't skip.
Stupid priorities like this, is what pisses me off with Blizzard.

Not something that takes a long time though, and you might have bigger first world problems to get pissed off of. Like your coffee being cold while you wrote that.
But yeah. Fixing of tortos locked screen would be nice.
Everyone has so much to say
They talk talk talk their lives away
meh it saves quite some lfr rage when doing this on my alt later this week.
people went bonkers on the folks making use of the skip. but silly to be honest, but they might as well have helped the ones out who went the normal way so it went faster.
I'd use the skip and go afk for 30 mins whilst everyone struggled to do it. I am happy it is fixed though to be honest because it took longer to get everyone up there in LFR than it did to clear the damn trash and it quite clearly wasn't intended for that use.

I am so tired of seeing terrible people, being admired, for being terrible people.
I really hope it is impossible now. Not because of people exploiting it, but because of the number of people who can't. I've been in too many LFRs lately where the group is split in 2, half on the boss platform, half still down there. You can watch them jump off the edge and just respawn down there again. 20mins later, and the raid is still split in 2 locations ><
Ultimately though, skipping trash that isn't meant to be skipped is a bad thing. And pointless too, since the trash takes like 10 mins to clear, if that.
To be fair though most of the trash in ToT is some combination of lame, boring and/or tedious. You would have thought they would have recalled the anger from Firelands trash (slightly less frustrating). I mean nobody wants a repeat of ToC with no trash at all (I personally did not mind though), but ToT is a bit too much, and not only is the trash long, but in many cases they are just downright frustrating (Dark Animus trash springs to mind. Absolutely terrible trash; you're almost guaranteed a wipe on that). I think the worst thing though is that the trash changes between mdoes, like the bridge before Horridon slows you down more on normal than on LFR, the knockback isn't there (so it's less stupid if you get hit), etc.
Personally, I think trash by definition should be non-elite, maybe with one elite "mini-boss" mob in each area, and maybe sometimes mixed up by pulls where you have to keep one guy away from the other or even *gasp* CC (ironically, Dark Animus trash would be the perfect place to use CC... except they're all immune).
