I am 50% absolutely certain that OP's post is meant as satire.
And 110% unsure that everyone is flipping out over a quasi-joke.
Loki, look back at his posting history...he means this.

Back to today. I disagree somewhat about the danger. Of course gray mobs can't do a lot unless you get swarmed, but the Isle of Thunder, that location annoys me by the dashing around pulled mobs and of course flight was taken away...I tried to do some of the dailies and if I was not fighting with other players over who got the tag or even finding live mobs. Not to mention pulling all the other trash forcing me to pound though another 1.5M HP broken up in two or 3 mobs just to get at my original target.
Yeah but the only time the mobs are 'really' dangerous is if you are a fresh 90, still in 420-440 gear; then sure they can swarm over you and eat your face, but once you start doing the dailies in dungeon heroic blues, or lfr/raid epics, they are trivial. I mean, when the Isle first came out, I had to do my dailies on my Monk in Brew, since I enjoy pulling large groups...now though? With 507 ilvl, my Windwalker just destroys them before they can ever do take away about a 10th of my health.
My new Warlock is only in 469 gear, but she eats through those mobs and laughs about it after; I've almost soloed a few of the Elite Rares on my own(almost as others have jumped in when they were at 45% or less).
The good old days of waiting 30 minutes for Jumpman to load off a cassette tape and you hoped it worked. If not fire it up again go watch television. (Until I got my 51/4 floppy drive and then I was in heaven...) Zork, Planet Fall...and I can't forget Mule for the C64.
Folks waited because that was fast then. 45min Bitmap downloads for pictures (JPEG wasn't even invented yet) on the BBS, ensured a very expensive phone bill too (it wasn't until AOL and such came around that the internet had "local" numbers to use. Before then, it was long distance calls that racketed up $300/mon phone bills).
Those who couldn't afford pre-built computers also built their own (Timex-Sinclair) -- so the computer geeks were also literal electrical engineers.
Have to remember $500 for a system then was a lot of cash, when minimum wage was under $3/hr. And you bought it with cash or check, as credit cards weren't so readily available.
Those who got into computing back then had to afford it or live frugally to do so (as they also had to work to buy their own car, mom and dad didn't buy their kids new ones on credit...you worked until 2am and dragged yourself to school in the morning, instead).
