This isn't true. There is a raiding scene, and those of us involved in the raiding scene pay close attention to world-firsts, and are entertained by the race.
Do not condescend something just because you in particular find no interest in it.
Have you ever seen someone doing real life roleplaying? You know "lighting bolt lighting bolt". It strange and i find it impossible to not be condescending about it. If that makes me a small person than so be it.
