From the Guidelines posted at the top of this (and every) forum:
Petition posts are frowned upon.
These are discussion forums and, as such, we ask that you hold discussions. Creating a thread to ask for replies as votes is not a discussion. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion.
From the forums Code of Conduct:
Spamming and Trolling
This category includes:
Excessively communicating the same phrase, similar phrases, or pure gibberish
Creating threads for the sole purpose of causing unrest on the forums
Causing disturbances in forum threads, such as picking fights, making off topic posts that ruin the thread, insulting other posters
Making non-constructive posts
Abusing the Reported Post feature by sending false alarms or nonsensical messages
Numbering a thread, IBTL, TLDR, or any other fad statements
If a player is found to have been spamming or trolling, he/she will:
Be given a temporary or permanent ban from the Battle.net forums, depending upon severity.
Our goal in these forums is to "provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss ideas, give game play advice, role-play, and converse about any other aspects of Blizzard's games with other players," and we really enjoy conversing with you when we can (and it is appropriate to do so). Please don't forget that we're constantly looking for such occasions, and threads where posters are mainly insulting one another are the opposite of constructive.
On issues like this one, we have a lot of opportunity to talk and better understand the possibility of changes and how they will affect the game. Let's try to do that.
