If we want to quarantine the infection of AJ, Nadagast says, "don't be an asshole". He seems to take it as catechism that the problem we face isn't PvP-related at all, it's trolls, or douchebags. How does Nadagast deal with large and intractable social forum phenomenon: "I'd like it to stop". He seeks to eliminate the AJ problem by first eliminating root social causes, a hopelessly daunting task at which, however, his very own title of Moderator serves to protect us from.
I've learned not to take forum posts too seriously over the years. People can claim anything and preach anything depending on who is in the choir. Anyone active in the Twittisphere may notice Nadagast and co. as they fellate Holinka. Meanwhile, Blizzard has offered us Stevie Wonder and Helen Keller to balance and promote PvP over the years. As Regentlord pointed out in a thread about shit ferals, "They have people who go to work 9 hours a day, 5 days a week who are supposed to work on PvP and all they come up with in 4 months is changing warrior charge talent?"
Frankly, we need people designing PvP who aren't shit at PvP. I haven't seen one game designer with a gladiator helmet. Stopping assholes is an interesting adventure, but our moral imperative is to fix PvP as soon as possible. Educate, don't evangelize. Moderate, don't minister.
