Remove personal flying mounts will have me on flight taxi more. flight taxi have zero engagement, immersion and danger. Removing flight is to slow our content consumption down.
Also I use personal flying mounts to engage in what I'm interested in. Not to avoid the entire world. If I wanted to do that, I would sit in the cities all day, and I don't!

It's up to the individual player for immersion and danger and both are very subjective to argue for. What you like and what others like are 2 different things.Personal mount - You said it - engaged when you choose to be usually avoiding engagement imersion and danger as much as possible.
Take TI for instance. That placed sucked when we got it for free, having to pay $50 for it doesn't maker it better when its everywhere.
blizzard can't really accomplish that goal. Nothing is stopping gamers from saying, F-U and skipping most of the open world as they buy a level 90, level on the ground as we always have if not level in dungeons and then move to dungons and raids never seeing the world.As they said, they want to make the world more engaging immersive and dangerous.
Immersion is up to the gamer and blizzard has no control of that.
Contrast that will flying there, drop down pick up what ever, bugger off.

You want a forced interaction game and the world revolve around your engagement to it. You might as well leave now because MMos are not built for you.
Do you get it now?
You seem to think the ground was some amazing interactive story with every gamers chit-chatting and doing things together.
It has never been that way and never will be. It was not that way since beta vanilla to current MoP and TI. Removing flying will not change that and taking TI into consideration the only time gamers really did interact was to kill something together which flying didn't screw up. If anything, I would have been there to help sooner.
Removing flying is not some great gaming miracle and it will not create this interaction you are dreaming of nor some immersion level you seem to think will happen.
The game you want is not an MMORPG.

Just stick with it like it used to be, no flying until you've completed the content at least once. I wouldn't argue with that. But if they never allow flying in Draenor, I wouldn't mind.
You can still interact with the world, you 'll just have to interact with it for longer.
You are making valid points, I understand what you are saying, but the problem with flying is it removes too much content. Its not good to have the world being interacted with purely on the players terms dropping in and out of the game.

Also, I kinda think you have the mindset that an MMO is an ant colony, with all the workers doing one thing to progress the colony, and all should be content with the status quo.
When really an MMO is like a children's playground, with some kids preferring the swings, some on the monkey bars, some in the sand pit, and some kids doing everything.
