This place was the Elitist Jerks of WoW PvP, it didn't allow bad people to post no matter what "good" they had to say, because in most cases it was already general knowledge of the population who played back then. The only way to earn access should be through rating, because rating = how good you are, in majority of cases. People with strong bias and ignorance such as yourself ( and also serious bad posting habits and I'd say, personality issues ) were also removed on a swift basis without any second thought given to it ( I had a quarrel with a biased Shaman player ( what's up with Shaman players and bias ), whole forum was trying to politely explain to him that he's wrong, I called him an idiot and got a 3 day ban - the said Shaman player got permabanned as well and the entire discussion was deleted - that's what AJ was like several years ago ).
Instead of trying to reinvent hot water with your sidekick's original post, understand something - arenajunkies was created as a hobby, and it grew into something much more as people flocked to AJ as the premiere place for arena discussion - it became a business. Original owner, Tyveris, sold the forum to Curse. Curse expects of this forum to make a profit, and it won't make a profit unless there's traffic. There's traffic if people are actually allowed to post. That's all there is really.
