It's likely a plane that takes you to the Twilight Highands as part of the opening quests for the zone. Thanks to MW in the comments for pointing this out.
I recently got a Kindle and was excited at the chance to subscribe to the WoW Insider blog, only to find out it's not available to Canadians. Is there any hope in the future of international folks like me being able to subscribe to your blog feed?
I'll ask around about it once people start getting back into the office this week, but there are likely some legal restrictions on it. These might seem silly to us, just like the ones that prevent us from holding contests for parts of Canada, but such is life -- ultimately, it's out of our control.
The other day, I was flying around in Feralas, and to the north of Dire Maul there was a weird island with a random assortment of NPCs who had developer names. Was this the original location of the GM island?
I'm not entirely sure where that area is you're talking about now, but I'm sure it's not GM Island. GM Island was to the north and west of the night elf starting zone. You can read more about GM Island in a piece I wrote a while ago.
