When we were lowbies we would announce “Ding” in guild chat that our character leveled. Then a slew of “Grats” would spam guild chat because you hit level 2. As you leveled your need to announce “ding” would die down and eventually stop when you hit max level (level 70). However Blizzard in their cunning and evil ways brought the “ding” back by implementing the Achievement system.
Now we are surrounded. Everywhere I go someone will get an achievement, which will announce in guild chat and say chat. Then an incoming of “Grats” spam begins. The madness will never stop.

*Curls up in the fetal position
*Starts to utter the word ”ding” and repeats it.
I know I can turn that feature off from chat but I kind of like to know what everyone is getting. There maybe one that I did not know about or seeing someone obtains a hard achievement (i.e. Ambassador) which deserves a congratulation.
I am neither against the achievement system nor individuals obtaining the achievements, I am just tired of the sea of grats. I guess I am stuck between a rock and a hard place…./sigh
