It's always amusing to see people confuse not wanting to do dailies with laziness.
I don't like daily chores. I like doing things in my own time.
It's not about someone being lazy, it's about not willing to put in the required effort. Which is fine. I would have liked The Insane title, but I was never willing to put in the effort required. I'm sure everyone wouldn't mind getting Ashes of Al'ar, but not everyone is willing to fly over to Netherstorm once a week for a small chance of getting it. It's your time playing the game and you can allocate it as you see fit, but don't complain if certain aspects of the game in your opinion require too much time/effort on your part.
If you want to increase your reputation with certain factions, you have to do quests for those factions. You can do them once a day (emphasis on 'can') to get to exalted the fastest, but if you ignore them for a few days/weeks, it's not like you lose your reputation with them (which would be a fun idea imho, but I can see how many many people would absolutely hate that).
Many people opposed to the current system keep yelling "I can't grind those dailies every day! I have a life! But I want/need the valor gear". Then do it five days a week. No time for that either? Do them thrice a week. No time to do a few dailies three times a week? Then maybe WoW (or any MMORPG) is not the game for you. Or you don't want/need the gear as much as you think you do.
