Mmmm Gud hits the nail on the head with the blog post "Maintenance mode? Absolutely incorrect".
But of course the doom callers will say the post Lokax links to is just from some community manager, so what do they know eh? Random forum troll #11678 knows much more, they have secret sources in Mythic, not that they can ever reveal them or give anything to validate their expertise. Oh, you used to work on MMOs? And that one over there is a financial expert? And chugnuts in the corner, a business analyst on Wall Street? Accurate estimates? Yeah we like those!
You know bugger all. Stop making shit up and stating it as fact.
The people stumbling across the interweb screaming "the end is nigh!" are exactly like the people with placards doing the same crap on city streets.
