    Default Anything is too vague, everything is too inclusive

    I really think that "anything" is too vague and unspecific; it's hard to do something about "anything" without more details. And "everything" is too broad; it's arguably specific, in that it specifies, well, everything... But that just means it specifies a bunch of things incorrectly.

    (... because someone said people on these forums will complain "about anything and everything". CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.)
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    i'll put it to you this way. When you try to be everything everybody, you end up being nothing to nobody.

    While true, that is not all of the reason why Tabula Rasa sucked.

    I only found out about that thing because someone posted this lovely retelling of the Wrathgate event in WotLK using it.

    Putress: Did you think we had forgotten? Did you think we had forgiven?
    Kanye West: *bamfs in* Exuse me, I'm really happy for you, and I'ma let you finish, but Arthas had the best betrayal of all time. OF ALL TIME! *bamfs out*
    Arthas: Wut?
    Putress: Did you... no, nevermind, I've lost the mood, I'm going to go sulk in Undercity.

    (Oversimplified; the original was much better, but was posted on the old forums, and thus deleted.)

    That was the day I felt like it had not been a matter of painful stupidity to read the WoW forums.
