FIRST: DON’T CLICK THE LINKS!

Second: anyone else notice this letter is from THE FUTURE???

Third: Oh, the spelling, the grammar! My English speaking sensibilities have forever been scarred by your brute force attack!

Just ’cause it has Blizzard in the name doesn’t mean it’s FROM Blizzard…oh, and the kicker? The e-mail address it was sent to has NEVER been affiliated with a Warcraft Account…
