I think this concept is a self-defeating one that people just use to justify everything they think is wrong with the game. There are bad guild groups. Not everyone in your guild, even if it's a raiding guild, is necessarily that great. You just tend to gloss over the fact that your guildie hunter launched his pet into a pack of mobs too soon, or broke 10 sheeps or whatever any normal person does as a mistake. But when it happens in a group that's not entirely made up of your "friends" you blame the concept rather than point out that it's usually a single bad apple that has the issues, and that bad apple probably is in a guild and also has friends. It can't be both can it? Everyone wants to see it their own precious way rather than how it actually is. I mean maybe you guys really do think everyone in your guild is awesome (they're not) and that your friends list is full of awesome players just because they talk to you in the game and make you laugh occasionally. Bad players come from everywhere, good players come from everywhere. The fact that too many people are too scared to branch out from their own sheltered guild existence is more of the reason why things suck.
