Petition to Blizzard regarding the Eyjafjallajökull volcano

Releasing Deathwing on the real world was a really bad idea! In the next expansion of the widely popular mmorpg World of Warcraft (WoW) - played by 12 million players - the world of Azeroth will be completely revamped by a series of earthquakes and volcano eruptions. As a teaser there have been ingame earthquakes for weeks now. As far as we can tell Blizzard, the makers of WoW, now has chosen to step up their ad campaign by releasing the menacing Deathwing, formely known as Nelfarion the Earth Warder, inside the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Had the said volcano been placed in say the Barrens, or even underneath something in Icecrown (there is always something underneath something in Icecrown) we would have applauded Blizzard for their good sense of storytelling. However the Eyjafjallajökull volcano is not placed there. It's not even on that kind of map. In fact, you can find it on Google Earth (and Blizz, we have sceenshots to prove it!). The fact that a game company has chosen to move an evil dragon to the real world is at the very least problematic. If you also consider that they just recently started to sell in game pets and mounts in their real world store, a terrifying pattern emerges. So, Blizzard, we can only beg you to reconsider this market plan. Strategies including evil dragons always backfires, and there will be no smoke screen big enough to cover all that ash. Yours humbly, Guildenstern and Zazoe of the Shadowsong server (EU) P.s. Can't wait for Cataclysm!
