Back on my old server, Silver Hand, we did the same thing. Everyone passed, then we would discuss who could use it most. If nobody needed it, those who wanted it would roll.I haven't had a chance to do a 5 man on my new server, Farstriders, so I can't confirm if it's a server by server thing.

We all pass on bop and then discuss need. This is to prevent people needing that don't really need it, as in, it would be a major upgrade for someone and just a minor upgrade for another. If we'd use the ingame system, they'd both need and the one for which it is a minor upgrade could win. While if we'd discuss it, the one with the minor upgrade might decide to pass in favor of the other and everyone is happy. Never had an enchanter unwilling to shard loot for others btw.

Coming from one of the older servers, we do the pass and discuss method for just that reason. I think it has a lot to do with how long you've been playing the game and how ingrained it is on the server. It used to be there was no need just pass and greed so the system evolved back then to pass on BOP and figure it out afterward when everyone is a little less twitchy. Generally people who were playing back then have just gotten in the habit and the new buttons are mainly just ignored.
