I can see if I can replicate it again. Like I said, it's something I've noticed the two times I've updated my OS (in turn reinstalled WoWMinion - WoW has always been a separate drive.).

Better Cache management.

Several times now when I've had to re-install WoWMinion (mostly cause I wiped it from an OS re-install), I get updates for Add-ons that should have updated weeks ago.

I run WoWMinion every few days,...

I run WoWMinion on Win 7 without any issues (been through a few versions of Win 7).

Like it was stated above, you don't need to re-install WoW for any reason (other than it was deleted!). I have WoW...

I get around this by installing WoW on a different drive. I don't know if you can go that or not, but it is an option (and it's saved my butt a few times when I reinstalled my OS).

Oh yeah, that's right. It was the dropping of the updater that dropped it back down to the background. ;)

I'm no lawyer, but I'm pretty sure there is no case here. WM isn't "stealing" any bandwidth here. They are using very publicly available links and webpages. Now, I do know of many cases that do *try*...

Interesting. yea, guess you're right. Doh! Yeah, this is bad. Not good to automatically do it. I checked my add-ons and they were auto-updated. Sorry for taking this out as far as I did then. I am...

Actually, that is no different. But, I did mention this in the post above; this is a user initiated action. The user's have to click "update out of date addons."

Teeechnically GPL gave them right to modify as well, but I won't go there.

You can't defend print papers. I won't go that route. In essence: they are doomed, print is out. Internet is in. I was talking about internet newspapers (eg: NYT "pay-walling" all their news articles...

Now you see how my analogy worked.

To Google's credit, and discredit of WM a bit, Google didn't re-print the entire article. WM works a little different in that WM is able...

My apologies if I took it the wrong way. I admit, I did skip around in the forums. I saw her single post with that single comment. I commented on it, out of context of the posts prior to that.
