Difference was... Whoknowsit, wasn't doing that. It was the other way around there. He has a legit ZG account that he originally paid for and then a group of donators here chipped in and helped upgrade for MoP. His account, against his and the donators' wishes, fed the torrents recently which was proven. The donations he asked for was to help pay for hosting that he was paying for to host the site/project he was making for this community to share ZG and more in partnership with others, so he didn't have to worry about mediafire or other filesharing sites taking down the files.
Some addons are standalone, and are able to run without any additional addons being installed; others can require certain other addons to be installed to work at all, or integrate with other addons to provide additional functionality. Collections of addons that have been put together to form a coherent user interface are sometimes referred to as UIs.

Often the name modification (or "mod" for short) is used interchangeably with AddOn. More specifically, a mod is a third-party AddOn that alters or enhances some aspect of the game's interface. Mods can perform a wide variety of tasks, including adding new buttons to the screen, altering the built-in player and party frames. In extreme cases, mods completely supplant the standard game's interface, usually offering more advanced functionality.
As of Patch 2.3, if you get a message "Interface action failed because of an AddOn", this means that an AddOn interfered with the Blizzard UI in some way. To diagnose this, enter the following into chat "/console taintLog 1" and restart the game and try to reproduce it. If you reproduce it, you can quit the game and search through the file Logs\taint.log for the word "blocked" and mail the log to the author of the AddOn listed there. Once you have done this you can turn off logging by entering the following into chat "/console taintLog 0"
I only subscribed about 2 days ago after coming back to WoW after 6 years. The game has changed so much since I left right around the Cata release. I decided to start fresh on a new server. I still had all my old links and logins to places like Curse, WowInterface, etc. Loaded up all the addons I had favorited years ago (of the maybe 1/3rd that were still maintained). Got to level 20 in a few hours of playing. Had to look a bunch of stuff up.
If you want to get rid of all of registries left on the program removal and don't want your Windows system is fill with redundant registries that someday may affect the system performance, you should perform a registry scan and clean with a sophisticated registry optimizer, it will help you clean all the useless and corrupted registry files on the system.

A lot of different types of addons are doing exactly the same thing. For example, Cross Realm Assist was an cross realm addon but in fact it is an LFG addon with its own UI. Serverhop and WQGF were doing exactly the same thing from program logic perspective. Even Badboy as a chat filter addon would filter LFG spamming. The idea behind BlockChinese could actually be used for premade groups as well. There is no point for people to install so many different addons for doing the exactly the same thing. These features should share the same code base and work together.
