A guild I was an officer in had a wipe in MC because a pally got too close and aggroed a boss. A couple of the officers insisted that we needed to punish this player since he had done it in a previous raid. I objected saying that punishing was fine as long as we'd had a policy in place before hand. We can't arbitrarily decide to do something like dock him his DKP for the raid if we hadn't established it as a rule before hand. We took a vote and we were split. Some of us said we should finish the raid and we could have a meeting about it later but there were a couple who refused to move on until we made a decision. We argued for about 20 minutes trying to at least get them to let us move on but hey refused. We finally called the raid and had a meeting about it. A couple of the ones who insisted on a punishment left the guild soon after the meeting began but the rest of us talked about it and worked out a temporary solution. Of course this solution was really more of a patch for a guild that already had it's fair share of problems. There were far too many egos involved and a couple of days later it all came to a head and the guild was disbanded before I even got home rfom work to discuss it. When the expansion was released, the former guild leader even quit the game because he was tired of all of the drama. Guilds are very fragile things indeed.
