Correct, Majeere, they have no right to tell someone how to play. But those raiders then have no right to tell the raid leaders to tell them. In order to be successful, you need to be dressed for success. That means having gear appropriate to what you're attempting to do and having it enchanted and gemed properly. If you don't, that's one person who is going to be less effective than he can be. And these are the days of the old 40-man raids when 25 people could effectively carry fifteen other people to the loot; between the weird spike damage, rage timers, and various other factors, it's much less feasible to take people into a raid who aren't going to pull their weight and even prepare to be successful.I doubt anyone is advocate docking a priest who comes in all Bonus Healing gems or even a lot of Intellect gems. That's a variation of playstyle (and one that I probably wouldn't agree with, though I could maybe understand the reasoning). However, if I saw a priest come into a raid with Defense gems or Attack Power gems I'd have to question if he's ready or suitable for the raid.
