People are not against the concept of instant cc, they are against it when the same class can harm their comp.
Why isn't there any post about hunter cc? You're reliable to lose the control of your character for a solid 1/3 of an arena game by hunter instants. It is worse than any form of cc for years.
The answer is, hunters do shit damage or they are easily killlable, so it's ok for them to control you indefinitely.
Instant CC is flat out retarded unless it's also restricted by a hefty CD
3min warrior fear, 2 min blind, ect
Hunter trap can be interrupted pretty reliably, but it's also pretty stupid at times.
It's when we start reducing CD's on those previously long CD abilities(Fear/Blind), adding in huge AoE instant CC(PoM RoF, Solar Beam), and brand new blatantly overpowered CC (bloodfear) that things start getting way out of control
On top of healers that use to have strict roles, are now being able to easily cover what was a previous healers strong point.
Good example of this is Hpal and Rdruid burst/CC, making disc look like childs play. Though the multi-tasking could be good for the game as a hole, it's creating a even more giant gap between classes and more frustration as a whole. But this is another discussion for another thread
