I'm not saying druids need to be nerfed to the ground (others need that far more than ferals), but I don't think they they're as terrible as they're being portrayed in this thread (and certainly not half as bad as they were back in TBC).
Personally, my portrayal of them as being bad was in reference to the brief period of time between Blizzard nerfing shapeshifting out of roots to Blizzard adding a root-breaker to Dash and Stampeding Roar. Let's just say that PvP in that brief period (which lasted a month or two) consisted of a lot of /dance whenever you met a caster with roots of some kind.
Things got sort of better once we could break roots at least three times before being screwed. Frost Mages have seven roots*, though, which is why they've remained our hard counter, and which is why Horse used the thread title he did.
