You're talking about a Feral Kitty taking a boss temporarily to get stacks and build DPS. Who cares? That's part of their class and part of the fight.
Hardly. "Here's some Festergut data, lol! This proves that Priests are worse than other classes!"
If you believe any kind of data like this is statistically significant or significant anywhere in the scope of this thread, you're just wrong. Especially when not every guild uploads to WOL, you can't really make a safe generalization at all if you go by just the #1 from each spec, and certainly not by just pasting data from one fight. That #1 could also be the person who never switched targets, got the power infusions constantly, got a buff from outside ICC to use on the boss, etc. They're advantages not everyone has access to and/or chooses to abuse and ultimately throws off the class balance intended by blizzard. Factor in massive RNG-favoring (which might not be streamlined across the board) and you just have bogus data.

best thing is to take the competent people and compare them, which is the same as comparing the top dps in similar gear across the board.
If you had actually gone to the link, it takes a sample from the top 200 players in the world playing that class/spec. They are the best of the best. There are no "bads."
I read 2 pages :P cba'd to read the 3rd :P just my opinion ,
it doesen't only depend on if u're at the same gear level ... it depends on what is that gear lever... cause u won't ever... but i mean...eeeever outdps a hunter with 1.4k ArP even if u have 1.5k haste ......
that's the situation i'm in atm :P our hunters , wars , feral droods are ArP capped :P and they are raping everything.... and our affli lock is doing good :P still i finish @ like top 4-5..... Spriests got really buffed at ICC ... in Putricide heroic i ended up at the top of the meter.... so it's not really easy to predict the final dmg meter standings ...... but yeh if your hunters wars and feral droods are ArP cap it may be some fights u're above em but the regular pattern @ ur dps meter is those 3 classes on top
