The way i report AFK'ers:Everytime I die, I bring up the BG stats page (or whatever it is called) I look at damage and healing. If it is more than a few minutes in to the BG, and they show 0 for both damage and healing I i find them on the mini-map. If they are sitting in a cave or out of the way place i report them AFK.

@11 problem with that is that if someone just got on recently because someone else left how can you be sure that they are afk or just new. I had this one guy in BG @ AB who who sat there while we were trying to hold the mines. Never did anything for about 5 minutes other then hit the space key to make his mount rein in. A couple of us reported him and then about 5 minutes later I saw him fighting on the field. I cant blame blizz. Its hard to tell who is really afk or who is on a emergency take that trash out right now or else. Or the baby is crying he needs a bottle. I have seen a huge decrease tho.

You don't have to find them on the mini-map. You can report them directly from the BG stats page by just right-clicking on their names.However, this is still a bad system. Even if it is only 5 players AFK, it requires even more players to effectively stop playing in order to report them. I think they should instead implement minimum thresholds for damage/healing/node capture/node defense. If someone is showing 0 across the board, it doesn't matter if they're at their computer or not. They're doing nothing and effectively hindering their team.
