Shortening the amount of time a player WASTES doing nothing BUT walking in Silverpine, or Barrens, or Desolace, or Silithus, or anywhere else is a godsend.

Yep. The point is to get people out of the vanilla landscape as fast as
possible so they can join their friends already playing the expansions. If
all you do is solo and level alts, I can see the attitute that it's "too
easy" now, but that's the point, they WANT to make getting to 70 easy

It's not just the old content. Levelling through Northrend was a complete joke in terms of difficulty in my opinion.
Add onto that, there's no longer a horrible price to pay if you want to
switch mains if you get bored. Paradoxically, people play MORE alts these
days and the old world is more populated than it was before the changes. I

I do recognise what a *huge* advantage it gives to people who want to re-roll or to new players wanting to join existing high level players. And I reckon that they'll keep players who get bored with their mains because re-rolling isn't so painful.
There is no winning position for blizzard here. People would bitch about it
either way. This is by far the best position though. *
This is true because people want different things from the game and some of them are mutually exclusive. I want a challenge whilst levelling and others want to speed through the content to play with friends. They are pretty much mutually exclusive aims unless Blizzard were to give the option to start at higher levels.
For what it's worth, I think that Blizzard chose correctly when they made it easier to get from 1-70. I believe that the number of people who will benefit from the change will be far greater than the number that will be unhappy with it. I just happen to be one of the few who are unhappy with it.
