I think if you had ended this post at "viable spec." it would've been perfect, reminding people that it may still be an option for, say, fights with a lot of raid damage. However, whether or not you specifically hate a given spec is irrelevant - if you're going for max DPS, you choose the spec that does best on an encounter. If not, don't bug the simcraft guys about your preferred, sub-optimal spec.

I understand that but the last sim i saw it was well above demo and just a hair behind destruction making it still a viable spec for those of use who hate SB affliction.
