The alpha is out! Did Rem get his? Jules has been raiding 25M Heroics this week. This week's discussion topic: when faced with racist, sexist, or similar type comments, when it is okay to speak out? Should one speak out against it? Tell Us One Thing returns, and we read feedback letters from you. This week's Think Tank questions: 1. When your raiders are stuck on Garrosh and people are losing motivation and arguing about strategy, how do you get everyone on the same page? 2. What is the difference between trolling and bullying, and what do they actually mean?
